Stem cell therapy?

Posted by brie @brie, Wed, Aug 28 11:59am

Hello, I am curious about the effectiveness of stem cell therapy with Ankylosing Spondylitis or Autoimmune Illnesses. Has any one read or heard; is it available, does insurance cover it, is it effective?

Hi @brie, I don't know of any success stem cell treatment/therapy for any autoimmune disease but there is a good discussion for neuropathy that you might be interested in reading through to see what others have discussed. Normally it's not covered by insurance. Also I don't think there have been any clinical trials or FDA approval for any of these types of treatments so it's good to do a lot of research.

I did find an article on Science Direct from this year that might provide some information for you — Ankylosing spondylitis and mesenchymal stromal/stem cell therapy: a new therapeutic approach.

Hi @reydelroble, Welcome to Connect. Have you been treated at a Regenexx clinic? From what I understand it's an alternative to orthopedic surgery.

No. I have done research and this is the only place I would consider if it would help. How do you treat a disease that jumps from one joint to another?

Is Regenrexx a stem cell product?

No. They are the ones who train doctors and treat conditions. Many quacks out there. https://regenexx.com/ Not sure if they can help us with RA…hoping.
