Inflammatory Conditions

Inflammatory Conditions
Stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine treatments have broad indications for patients with a whole spectrum of inflammatory conditions. Inflammation refers to the biological response to stimuli that your body interprets as being potentially harmful. While after injury and in certain conditions inflammation is a normal response, inflammatory disorders that result in the immune system attacking the body's own cells or tissues may cause abnormal inflammation, which results in chronic pain, swelling, stiffness, and damage to normal tissues.

At Cedar Stem Cell Institute in Columbus, Ohio we offer a comprehensive approach to treating a wide spectrum of inflammatory conditions. We use patients own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) as well as their own stem cells from bone marrow aspirates and even amniotic fluid. We guide our treatment by scientific research, common sense and patient's wishes, and we tailor the treatment to the individual. Cedar Stem Cell Institute also participates in clinical research to compare different techniques and commercially available products.

Examples of inflammatory conditions include: Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), Gout, Inflammatory Arthritis, myositis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Scleroderma, Sjogren's Syndrome, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE, Lupus) and vasculitis.

Ulcerative Colitis

There is clinical research to show that the immunomodulatory effect of stem cell therapy may reduce inflammation and tissue injury in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, which includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease (Dave et al, 2015).
