What are Autoimmune Diseases?

Several dozen conditions, some of them well known and others more obscure, fall into the category of autoimmune diseases. What all those conditions have in common is that the body’s immune system malfunctions and starts to attack healthy tissue.

We all have an immune system within our bodies that works to identify and deal with hostile substances, such as viruses and bacteria, when they enter the body. An autoimmune disease describes the situation when that system targets healthy tissue instead.

Some of the most common forms of autoimmune disease are:

Symptoms of autoimmune diseases vary according to the condition, but sufferers often feel fatigue, aching muscles, numbness, and inflammation.

Potential for Using Stem Cells for Autoimmune Diseases

The way in which stem cells work means they have the potential to make a positive difference to the quality of life of people suffering from autoimmune diseases.

Stem cells are undifferentiated, or blank, cells. They can develop into healthy tissue that can then be used for whatever purpose the body requires. Stem cells have anti-inflammatory properties, and can work to bolster the body’s immune system.

Our research has shown that the best source of stem cells is umbilical cord tissue harvested from healthy, full-term volunteers. Once collected, we can apply those stem cells to a patient, either by targeted injection or intravenously.

Those cells then go to work to generate the healthy tissue required. They can effectively replace tissue that has been damaged by the body’s misfiring immune system.

The ability of stem cells to support healing means that applying stem cells for autoimmune diseases has the potential to deliver a positive outcome for people suffering from a variety of serious conditions.

The progress of autoimmune diseases may be slowed by stem cell treatment, while there have been cases in which they have been stopped completely.
