Stem Cell Treatment: Promise for Arthritis Cure

Arthritis involves mechanical abnormalities at the place of bone joints in human body. There is no specific joint in human body where Arthritis can take place, however in most of these cases it is found that osteoarthritis takes place at knee joint. Mainly people with forty plus age have more chances to get this disease. Main reasons for this disease are like excess mechanical movements like walking, running, athletic exercises and work outs. There are treatments available for this disease like joint replacement, acupuncture and other drug medications with their own limitations. However, most promising, natural and long lasting treatment for this disease is stem cell treatment.    

Stem cell treatments belong to new and non conventional natural medication treatment type. However, three decades of research on stem cell development and processing have started showing guaranteed results in kind of orthopaedic diseases.  Along with osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis many other types of arthritis can be treated with this treatment. Unlike traditional treatments on arthritis stem cell treatment is not consist of any surgery. The theoretical justification for the approach to adult stem cell therapy is based on solid science. All human life begins with an ovum and a sperm. Cells then arise in the fertilized ovum, which after a few days in the womb develop into embryonic stem cells. These cells are much unspecialized and possess the ability to develop into all of the 220 human cell types.

Diagnosis for arthritis is made by clinical examination from an appropriate health professional, and may be supported by other tests such as radiology and blood tests, depending on the type of suspected arthritis. All arthritides potentially feature pain. Pain patterns may differ depending on the arthritides and the location. Rheumatoid arthritis is generally worse in the morning and associated with stiffness; in the early stages, patients often have no symptoms after a morning shower. Osteoarthritis, on the other hand, tends to be worse after exercise. In the aged and children, pain might not be the main presenting feature; the aged patient simply moves less, the infantile patient refuses to use the affected limb.

Mesenchymal stem cellsImage, or MSCs, are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types,including: osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), and adipocytes (fat cells). Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult autologous stem cells found in the bone marrow. However, Mesenchymal stem cells can also be isolated from other tissues including cord blood, peripheral blood, fallopian tube, and fatal liver and lung. Mesenchymal stem cells are a distinct entity to the Mesenchymal, embryonic connective tissue which is derived from the mesoderm and differentiates to form hematopoietic stem cells. Because of their multi-potent capabilities, Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) lineages have been used successfully in animal models to regenerate articular cartilage and in human models to regenerate bone.

There are very few institutes and hospitals that provide stem cell treatment for arthritis. However, you can visit and consult stem cell transplant experts in Mumbai. Some of these institutes also provides virtual clinic facility for first consultation.

Human Adipose Stem Cells: Current Clinical Applications (Summary)

Adipose-derived stem cells are multipotent cells that can easily be
extracted from adipose tissue, are capable of expansion in vitro, and have the
capacity to differentiate into multiple cell lineages, which have the potential for
use in regenerative medicine. However, several issues need to be studied to

the enforcement of U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations. Numerous
studies have been published, with the interest in the potential for regenerative
medicine continually growing. Several clinical trials using human adipose stem
cell therapy are currently being performed around the world, and there has
been a rapid evolution and expansion of their number. The purpose of this
article was to review the current published basic science evidence and ongoing
clinic altrialsinvolvingtheuse of adipose-derived stem cells in plastic surgery and
in regenerative medicine in general. The results of the studies and clinical trials
using adipose-derived stem cells reported in this review seem to be promising Imagenot
only in plastic surgery but also in a wide variety of other specialties. Nevertheless,
those reported showed disparity in the way adipose-derived stem cells were used.
Further basic science experimental studies with standardized protocols and larger
randomized trials need to be performed to ensure safety and efficacy of adipose derived
stem cells use in accordance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration
guidelines.

Stem cells can cure Ankylosing spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis, previously known as Bechterew’s disease, (or syndrome) and Marie-Strümpell disease, is a chronic inflammatory disease of the axial skeleton with variable involvement of peripheral joints and nonarticular structures. AS is a form of spondyloarthritis, a chronic, inflammatory arthritis where immune mechanisms are thought to have a key role. It mainly affects joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joint in the pelvis, and can cause eventual fusion of the spine.

It is a member of the group of the spondyloarthropathies with a strong genetic predisposition. Complete fusion results in a complete rigidity of the spine, a condition known as “bamboo spine”. There is no cure for AS, although treatments and medications can reduce symptoms and pain.

Treatment protocols derived using stem cells aspired from bone marrow and adipose tissues will show immediate improvement in the condition of patient. Along with stem cells treatment, few tailored therapeutics can help to cure Ankylosing spondylitis in very short span of time.Image    

 

Power and Significance of Stem Cell Treatment

Medical science and its innovations has always helped the human race in being healthy and living a long life. There have been many diseases which were considered to be fatal in the past years but now they are curable. People are no more afraid of those diseases. For example small pox and tuberculosis are two of those diseases which have been responsible for finishing lives of millions of people. However today they are easily curable with allopathic medicine. Similarly many other newly discovered diseases which are not curable by allopathic medication can be cured by stem cells therapy

Stem cell treatment is a latest cell biology invention or method which has received a lot of attention of biologist, researchers across the globe. This treatment is the only best alternative to traditional or current methods of treating diseases. In this therapy stem cells are harvested from patient’s body only. Then after processing those cells are injected to the damaged part of the diseased person’s body for the purpose of healing disease or damage. These are basically immature cells which can be differentiated in to other types of the cells and then can develop in to new cells or organs.

In many tissues they serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing essentially without limit to replenish other cells as long as the person or animal is still alive. When one divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain as is or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell. Stem cell treatment is less cost effective way of treatment as compared to all other ways. We all know that people suffering from cancer undergo painful and expensive chemotherapy. But as far as stem cell treatment is concerned, patients get treated without any painful surgery or procedure.

Stem cell information is very significant to us in order to dig deeper and fathom the issues associating stem therapy. Human body is made up of cells that function to different parts of the body. Cells are microscopic matters, their performance inside is a big factor on how our body in general performs. They are like human too; they have life stages, life span and susceptible to infections. Cells act like a driver and human is the car; when they are sick they might bump the car and as a human we will set sick as well.

Stem cell treatment is the newly discovered kind of treatment known to be more effective than the other treatments available today. Other treatments do not ensure cure form the diseases, however  stem cell treatment ensures cure form disease. It is due to the fact that new cells are formed which are healthy and replace the cells causing disease in the person. Success rate of this treatment is enormous. People go for the treatment in lethargic condition and come back on their feet with a healthy smile on their faces.
