Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases have always been difficult to treat. However, JMC Stem Cell Therapy can prove to be a good option for those suffering from these diseases such as lupus, scleroderma and rheumatoid arthritis. This treatment makes use of adult stem cells to help patients get over their autoimmune conditions which can be quite debilitating and serious.

Autoimmune Diseases: An Introduction

The immune system is responsible for defending your body from invasion by foreign objects and organisms. Failure of the immune system to protect will lead to infections and diseases that can be caused by organisms, cells or viruses. On the other hand, the immune system can turn against your own body. Such instances are termed as autoimmune responses.

When your immune system begins to attack your own tissues, cells or organs, autoimmune diseases set in. In such cases, the immune system is unable to differentiate between foreign and native bodies. Autoimmune diseases have become widespread and they tend to be quite varied. Most of these diseases are chronic and debilitating. Some of them are given below.

Using Stem Cells to Treat Autoimmune Diseases

Mesenchymal stem cells or MSCs are easily found in the adipose tissues of the body. These cells have the ability to promote the healing and regenerative process. As such, MSCs are remarkably effective at stopping the destructive responses of the immune systems. At the same time, they will help the body to regain its normal functions. This will be done by allowing the damage to be repaired at the cellular level while promoting blood flow and decreasing inflammation.

An Overview of Autoimmune Diseases and Treatments

Mesenchymal stem cells can be used to treat stem cells in a variety of ways.

Type 1 Diabetes

The immune system will attack and destroy the cells that produce insulin along with the supporting blood vessels. This results in Type 1 Diabetes. MSCs can replace the damaged cells and repair the blood vessels by promoting their growth. This allows the cells responsible for producing insulin to start functioning normally. In turn, diabetes will no longer be a problem.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

This disease primarily affects the different joints in the body. It can even lead to degenerative joint disease down the line. At the same time, this disease can also result in serious complications in the cardiopulmonary system leading to a reduction of blood flow. That can lead to various heart diseases. MSCs can help alleviate the problems in the joints and ensure that blood flow is restored to normal levels.

Multiple Sclerosis

Abnormal immune responses can lead to multiple sclerosis which is an inflammatory disease. Here, the insulating covers that protect the nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain become damaged. This disrupts the nervous system as the nerves are unable to communicate with each other effectively. JMC Stem Cell Therapy can bring back the nerves to normalcy and eliminate communication problems.

JMC Stem Cell Therapy can help bring about significant improvements in patients suffering from autoimmune systems. They can start leading a normal life free from pain and worries.
