What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease which causes swelling, pain, stiffness and deformed joints. It is a form of arthritis that attacks body’s own tissues specifically the synovial which is a thin membrane that lines the joints. As a result of this attack, the fluids buildup in the joints and causes pain in the joints as well as inflammation which is systemic. Commonly it affects the hands. RA is a chronic disease which cannot be cured and it may lead to long-term joint damage which results in chronic pain, loss of function and cause disability.
Most people with RA experience intermittent bouts of the intense disease activity called as flares. In some people, the disease is continuously active and it can get worse over time. Some people enjoy long periods of remission i.e. no disease activity of symptoms at all. Evidence shows that the early diagnosis and aggressive treatment to put these disease into remission is the best means for avoiding the joint destruction, disability and organ damage.
The symptoms include stiffness, pain, swelling, fatigue, redness and warmth, loss of appetite, malaise and muscle aches.
Stem Cell Therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis
The stem cells are known to have a tangible application in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). They have immunomodulatory, immunosuppressive, anti-inamatory and the homing property. The anti-inamatory cytokines secreted by mesenchymal stem cells will induce the production of T regulatory cells, which is a type of immune cell whose function is to protect the body against immunological self attack.
The intra-articular infusion of the stem cells in the joints using the ABC technology will give rise to the mesenchymal tissue such as bones, cartilage, nerves, etc. The stem cell therapy for rheumatoid arthritis can also halt the progression of the disease which will prevent further complications of the disorder. The adult stem cells may target the inflamed areas of the body and produce the anti-inflammatory agents. Adult mesenchymal stem cells are able to address the complications caused by RA.
There are multiple ways to deliver the highest amount of activated stem cells to the areas patients need them the most. The multiple ways they can be administered includes- Intra Nasal: which includes administration to access a highly vascular pathway of the nose for encouraging more stem cells to travel past the blood brain barr. Full body IV which is directed into the vein and direct site injections which will be directly injected into the site that needs repair such as muscles and tendons.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis
The stem cell therapy for rheumatoid arthritis presents a unique opportunity for healing and pain relief across a spectrum with lasting benefits. The MSCs are particularly effective to treat the autoimmune disorders such as RA since they are able not only to promote the repair of the damage caused to the joints but also to halt the destructive immune system response thereby prevent further damage from continuing to occur. As per the clinical research, MSCs can offer lasting benefits or at least some relied in the pain and stiffness of the joints due to the infusion of the stem cells. It also addresses the microvascular complications by carrying out important jobs such as reduce the inflammation, improve the blood flow, repair and replace the damaged tissue.
