Currently there are clinical trials around the world being undertaken in many autoimmune disease fields including;
- Relapsing Polychondritis
- Auto Immune Hepatitis
- Crohn’s Disease
- Rheumatoid Arthriris
- Myathenia Gratis
- Lichen Sclerosis
These trials can take between 5 and 10 years to come to fruition, however the overwhelming understanding and results thus far are proving very successful. At Cellf we have studied these treatments and applied what we believe to be the most beneficial, non-invasive and safe protocols as our range of therapies. For more information please look at the many web sites available.
Cellf endeavours to help our patients to make informed decisions and offer the “Pros and Cons” in our full patient consultation process.
There are those in the medical and scientific professions that believe Cell Therapy should be banned until it has had the necessary trials. What the existing trials are showing is that by using the patient’s own cells in a fully enclosed unit there is no chance of rejection or contamination. And in some trials the worst outcome is no outcome. Unlike some treatments that are currently considered safe and effective with terrible side effects.
From “The Stem Cell Institute”
Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which the patient’s immune system generates cellular and antibody responses to substances and tissues normally present in the body. This might be restricted to one organ or involve a particular tissue in different places. As a result of this immune response, damage to different organs occurs. Examples of autoimmune diseases that have responded to stem cell therapy either in animals or humans include rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and lupus.
How can stem cells help treat autoimmune disease?
Currently, autoimmune conditions are treated with immune suppressive agents such as steroids, methothrexate, cyclosporine, gold, and more recently infliximab (Remicade). Despite inducing temporary improvement, these approaches possess the possibility of long-term adverse effects, as well as need for life-long treatment.
Stem cell therapy has been demonstrated to induce profound healing activity in animals with various forms of autoimmune disorders. Besides healing damaged tissues, stem cells have the unique ability to modulate the immune system so as to shut off pathological responses while preserving its ability to fight off disease. Stem cells and specifically, mesenchymal stem cells home to inflamed tissue and start producing anti-inflammatory agents. These mediators act locally and do not suppress the immune response of the patient’s whole body. Additionally, mesenchymal stem cells induce the production of T regulatory cells, a type of immune cell whose function is to protect the body against immunological self-attack.

It is important to remember that although “Cell Regeneration Therapy” is an outpatient procedure and has been seen as a viable treatment to help soothe symptoms of pain, Cellf can neither predict or guarantee success for individual patients who undergo the Therapies. There are potential risks associated with any medical procedure. Please discuss this with a medical practitioner prior to undergoing any procedures.
