Potential Cell Therapy For Bowel Disease

WHY THE HELL >>>>>>> AREN’T we researching this more and actively using more of these cell therapies to treat diseases?

 

Up to 1 million Americans have IBD, which is characterized by frequent diarrhea and abdominal pain. IBD actually refers to two conditions – ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease – in which the intestines become red and swollen and develop ulcers, probably as the result of the body having an immune response to its own tissue. Researchers have identified a special population of adult stem cells in bone marrow that have the natural ability to migrate to the intestine and produce intestinal cells, suggesting their potential to restore healthy tissue in patients with IBD. There is no cure for IBD, but treatments that dont always work, but this type of injectable  therapy could be more effective.

 

Food for thought…
