Autoimmune Disease Treatment with Stem Cell Transplantation

Immune system disorders cause abnormally low activity or over activity of the immune system. The immune system is composed of special cells and organs that deal with invaders and allergens. Autoimmune diseases are more frequent in women than in men. Autoimmune disorders are broadly grouped into two categories. ‘Organ-specific’ means one organ is affected, while in ‘non-organ-specific’ disorders, multiple organs or systems may be affected.

Examples of autoimmune diseases include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Type 1 diabetes mellitus
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Psoriasis
  • Graves’ disease
  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Vasculitis

Stem cells have become a promising tool for their treatment by promoting tissue repair and protection from immune-attack associated damage. Stem cell transplantation has been recommended for use in the treatment of Autoimmune disease because it provides immunosuppressive and immunomodulatory effects.
