Treat Ulcerative Colitis & Crohn’s With Stem Cells

I would like to offer some hope that the future brings new better, more effective treatments with less side effects.

Traditional treatment for IBD typically requires a wide variety of pharmaceutical medications ranging from:

Corticosteroids
Biologic therapies
Antibiotics
Immunosuppressive medications

a quick summary: Stem cell therapy for crohn’s helps to reset and repair the immune system using differentiated Hematopoietic mesenchymal stem cells. The infused cells help to improve the autoimmune disease by helping to promote a change in the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines to the beneficial anti-inflammatory cytokines at and near the site of injury. The enriched cells act like a patch that covers any ulcer regions in the intestines allowing them time to heal properly.
