LA JOLLA, Calif., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, over 23.5 million people suffer from over eighty different types of known autoimmune diseases. Unfortunately, treatment for those suffering from non-curable autoimmune diseases has been limited to:
- Slowing the Spread of the Diseases
- Controlling the Symptoms
With the recent emergence of regenerative medicine, doctors and medical groups around the world are developing new techniques to help treat suffering patients. New scientific and medical findings in regenerative medicine are leading to natural alternative treatments and advancements that are life altering.
The body's immune system is a complex network of special cells and organs that defends the body from germs and other foreign invaders. In order for the immune system to function properly, it needs the ability to tell the difference between what's you and what's foreign. When the immune system cannot, it attacks normal cells by mistake. The result of these misguided attacks is what is known as autoimmune disease.
Some common autoimmune diseases are:
What's exciting today is that new techniques through clinical studies are underway and they are helping unlock the code to our regenerative anatomy. For instance, studies using stem cells and gene therapy have shown great promise for ALS. This gene therapy is designed to not only target gene delivery to the brain and spinal cord, but also to genetically engineer stem cells.
Another undeniable medical breakthrough in autoimmune stem cell therapy usage occurred in Berlin Germany in 2007. Timothy Ray Brown, who was diagnosed in 1995 with HIV AIDS and Leukemia, agreed to a bone marrow transplant with the use of stem cells. Timothy received a donor's platelets and stem cells, who was immune to HIV AIDS and Leukemia. Dr. Ray Levy, a co-discoverer of the HIV epidemic and top AIDS researcher, stated the result are to be considered "A functional cure for HIV". This proclamation is due to neither HIV nor Leukemia recurring since the surgery. With the use of adult stem cells, reconstruction of damaged body tissues and recreation of the original immune system is possible.
StemGenex, a U.S. based company, is on the forefront of providing treatment access to patients suffering with all types of autoimmune diseases using adult stem cells. Intriguingly, scientific research studies suggest that adult stem cells can treat autoimmune disease effects and symptoms by reconstructing body tissue, anti-inflammatory and immune modulatory effects. StemGenex hopes to eliminate symptoms and regenerate parts of the immune system using new innovative stem cell technology.
