Stem cell therapy utilizing umbilical cord stem cells is a promising treatment for autoimmune diseases, which are caused by the immune system attacking healthy cells and tissues in the body. Stem cell therapy utilizes immature cells that have the ability to develop into different types of cells, including immune cells.
Umbilical cord stem cells are a particularly appealing source of stem cells because they are young and have not yet been exposed to environmental factors that may affect their ability to differentiate into specific cells. An important fact is that they are donated after a healthy birth with no harm coming to mother or child.
How do umbilical derived mesenchymal stem cells help autoimmune disease?
One way that umbilical cord stem cells can help with autoimmune diseases is by modulating the immune system. When these stem cells are introduced into the body, they can differentiate into immune cells and promote a more balanced immune response. This can reduce the inflammatory response and slow down or stop the damage being done to the healthy cells and tissues.
Another way that umbilical cord stem cells can be beneficial in treating autoimmune diseases is by regenerating damaged tissue. Autoimmune diseases can cause significant damage to various organs and tissues, such as the skin, joints, and organs. Umbilical cord stem cells can differentiate into specific cells, such as skin cells or joint cells, and help to repair or replace damaged tissue.
Your disease is degenerative
Autoimmune disease are largely degenerative meaning that your condition is worsening each and every day. The disease is costly to live with and is negatively impacting your quality of life. Although, most autoimmune diseases are not fatal, major organs like the kidneys and lungs can be involved and this is the leading cause of fatality. Stem cell therapy can help reduce the symptoms but more importantly aid you body in immune system modulation and tissue repair. Reducing the potential for serious or fatal outcomes.

Umbilical derived mesenchymal stem cells have significant anti-inflammatory properties, which help to reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a key factor in many autoimmune diseases, and reducing it can help to slow down or stop the progression of the disease.
One specific autoimmune disease that umbilical cord stem cells have shown promise in treating is rheumatoid arthritis. This is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints, leading to joint damage and loss of mobility. Umbilical cord stem cells have been shown to reduce inflammation, promote the growth of new tissue, and improve joint function in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Another autoimmune disease that umbilical cord stem cells have shown potential in treating is type 1 diabetes. This is a condition where the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, leading to an inability to produce insulin and regulate blood sugar levels. Umbilical cord stem cells have been shown to improve insulin production and regulate blood sugar levels in patients with type 1 diabetes.
