An autoimmune disorder is a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells and tissue. Currently, autoimmune conditions are treated with what are called immunosuppressive agents such as steroids and other suppressive medications that possess the possibility of long-term adverse effects.
Regenerative medicine focuses on treating autoimmune disorders and inflammation with mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) that home in on inflamed tissue and start producing anti-inflammatory agents. MSC cells also encourage the production of what are called T regulatory cells—these cells function to protect the body against immunological self-attack. Regenerative medicine can help slow down the progression of autoimmune conditions.
Conditions that can be treated include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Multiple sclerosis
All autoimmune disorders are different as is each person. It is important to be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimal results from the regenerative medicine process.
