Adult stem cell cures are rapidly expanding; creating positive outcomes in human diseases which medical science previously thought were incurable. Researchers and doctors are now learning that for these diseases, it was not a substance created outside the body that was needed for cure; it was the technology to harness the body’s own healing power. Thailand stem cell therapies have harnessed that power to some degree, and now researchers are working on applications of the technology for autoimmune patients.

Serious research into the use of human adult stem cells for autoimmune diseases is actually fairly new. One major study that has pushed along thought in the area was performed recently by Dr Burt of the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine was actually a review of previous literature. The basic outcome of the study suggested that the disease-remitting effect of stem cells (the hematopoeic, or blood derived variety) is potent for autoimmune disease, at the time there were no randomized trials published. Further, remission duration remained unclear – would this be a permanent ‘healing’ of the human disease, or only a temporary relief?

Now research into adult stem cell cures for autoimmune diseases is gathering steam. Doctors are beginning to look into several diseases particularly as candidates for hematopoeic stem cell transplant trials. Rhematoid arthritis, the adult and juvenile versions, scleroderma, lupus and Crohn’s disease are the likely first candidates for stem cell cures.

Autologous hematopoeic stem cell therapy has been under experimentation as a rheumatoid arthritis treatment since 1996. Currently it is only used on treatment-resistant RA, however, most research indicates that the adult stem cell cure is relatively safe. The therapy works not only on the disease itself, but also helps sensitize the body to conventional drug treatment. A study of RA patients is currently under enrollment, looking at patients who have ‘failed’ at least four of the common disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs), and have had RA for between 2 and 15 years. However, impetus for the study has decreased in recent times, inversely proportional to the availability of alternative therapies for RA.

Lupus is a difficult disease to pin down, and can be as disturbing to a patient’s quality of life as rheumatoid arthritis. Lupus causes the body’s immune system to turn on its own tissue, causing inflammation and pain. Current treatment is with the same class of drugs as for RA, and just as with the previous illness, there is currently no cure. The NIH is America is currently recruiting lupus patients to undergo a pilot study involving autologous HSCT. As with RA, it is expected that a significant proportion of the treatment’s value may be in sensitizing the body to conventional drug treatment with fludarabine and rituximab. However, the safety of allogenic stem cell transplants for lupus patients is expected to improve, and may be a realistic option before autologous treatment becomes available.

Treatment for Crohn’s Disease with Thailand stem cell therapy is also a future possibility, with a pilot study currently being organized. Funding and enrolment has yet to be arranged, and only the most severe and resistant cases of the disease will be eligible. Scientists expect that mobilization of the body’s own stem cells using both HSCT and drug options will be more useful than actual transplants.

    Another book question (Fantasy/Horror)?
    Yeah I am writing a fantasy horror and I need advice on where to go with it. Its called Shadow-Lords. I will give a list of charectors and can you review them.
    Steven Royal- An ageless warlock who looks to be in his thrties who is recruited by his old friend Death to fight Shadow-Lords which are powerful black magic warlocks
    Oliver Trojan- Steven Royal’s assistant who follows Steven into Death’s Palace and is kidnapped by Shadow-Lords and eventually becomes one
    Sir Matthew Draken- A vampire prince who is sober from blood and is learning the ways of magic
    Reflection- one of Death’s Minions who helps Steven to combat Shadow Lords
    Rowan Lupus- A enigmatic former assistant of Steven’s who is now partenered with Sir Matthew Warmonger to try and prevent Shadow-Lords breaking through to earth
    Rebecca Cutthroat- A ageless sorceress who once was married to Steven. She is now a guard of Shadow-Lords

      you have some really cool charecters, you need to sort beggining (explain stuff and introduce) first middle (start an adventure) second middle ( introduce a ttwisted plot) third middle (how they survive or die) end (goes back to normal and ends, or goes back to normal but then the last page starts a new twist for a new book) <- try not to say 'the end' as it means there is almost no way of going on with a new book, you can always continue with a new book even if its the 50th book in a saga, thats what anoyed me with breaking dawn (steph meyer) she said the end, and i could think of loads to make another book.

    My Final Name List For My Book?
    Okay, these are my names for my book. It’s about people who can change into animals. I haven’t copied it off anything that I know or have read. If you want to know a little more about the book, read my last resolved question.

    Here are the names:

    Tonia Antoinette Vulpes – Main Character – Bright, fire red hair. Light green eyes. A tattoo of random geometric figures cutting through her right eyebrow. Her hair is her Morph trait.

    Pydrala Dylan Lupus – Dark, short brown hair. Dark brown, almost black, irises. Tattoo of a howling wolf through the eyebrow on the right side of her face.

    Frizz Lee Markus – Golden brown hair that falls in his face. Yellow – gold eyes. A snake tattooed on his forearm.

    Melanie Lynn Strier – Caramel blonde hair and icy blue eyes.

    Zane Kevin Avery – Dark Black hair and blue eyes.

    Those are the main and major characters. What do you think?
    Trust me, Harry Potter never came into my mind. As before, check out the draft from my book.
    And I personally am not a Harry Potter fan, thank you very much!

      I like the names there different…. I like the descriptions along wit the names….. I think maybe they should all have a tat going thru their eyebrows…… just a thought.

    need some answers please if you can?
    so in order not to bore you with a book, long story short, Muscle pain, twiches ever so often, good muscle tone but every inch of my body hurts, I am so tired i can’t explain it. have had NUMEROUS tests done, mri, bone,, blood, thryroid, spine, the list goes on and on and on. Everything is normal. Doc thinks its lupus, not so sure. however the prednisone and plaquenil make me feel soo much better its amazing. if I do not take the prednisone, It feels like someone is sitting on my head and pressing down. The presssure is unreal, the fatige is horrible and in addition, my face muscles are very tight and i get so tired i can’t talk anymore literally.
