Stem Cell Therapy For Autoimmune Diseases

More and more successful clinical cases have shown that stem cells have good effects on immune regulation and tissue repair. Many patients with autoimmune diseases from all over the world choose to come to SQ1 medical center for stem cell therapy and had significant improvements.


The Beneficial Effects Of Stem Cell Therapy On Autoimmune Diseases

The advantage of stem cell therapy for autoimmune disease is that it can help repair and regenerate tissues that were damaged during the autoimmune attacks, including damaged nerves, skin, blood vessels, organs, etc. At the same time, stem cells can regulate the immune system so that it stops attacking the body. Scientific studies have shown that stem cells can minimize the pathological effects of the immune system self-attacks, thereby avoiding autoimmunity, while maintaining the body’s ability to defend agist foreign substances and real pathogens.


Stem cell therapy helps:

Prevent disability and improve patients’ quality of life


Inhibit the formation of auto-immune antibodies


Alleviate the fibrosis process of damaged organs


Helps restore the normal function of damaged organs


Normalize immune system function


Reduce or eliminate inflammation


Alleviate joint pain


Reduce medication dosage


Reduce recurrence rate


Autoimmune Diseases That Stem Cell Therapy Can Treat


Lupus erythematosus: including cutaneous and systemic lupus erythematosus


Rheumatoid arthritis


Sjogren’s syndrome








Ankylosing spondylitis


Ulcerative colitis




Crohn’s disease




Autoimmune thyroiditis


Studies have found that stem cells have immunoregulatory functions on various immune cells in the body. According to the follow-ups of our patients, over 76% of the patients had significant relief of symptoms within one year after receiving treatment, and the recurrence rate was significantly reduced. Stem cell therapy has become a wise choice for patients with autoimmune diseases.


Learn More About Autoimmune Diseases


Autoimmune diseases are diseases in which the body’s immune system malfunctions and causes the body to attack its normal tissues. The immune system is the security system of the human body. Through the immune surveillance mechanism, it always watches over for any pathogen invasion or cell mutations throughout the body. Once an abnormality is found, the corresponding immune response program will be activated to eliminate and remove pathogens or diseased cells.

If the patient’s immune system is over-activated under the combination of genetic defects and predisposing factors, it may mistakenly attack its normal tissues and cells, resulting in organ and tissue damage in the body that leads to autoimmune diseases. Up till now, about 7.6-9.4% of the world’s population suffer from various types of autoimmune diseases. Generally, it is difficult to cure it after the onset of the disease. Most patients need long-term or even life-long medication.


Risk Factors For Autoimmune Diseases



Factor Description

Family inheritance

If there are confirmed autoimmune patients with family members, the risk of the disease will increase significantly, such as rheumatoid arthritis, Idiopathic Inflammatory myopathy.

During embryonic development, due to gene mutation, the related immune regulatory system became malfunctions. Genetic mutations lead to susceptible genotypes that will increase the risk of developing autoimmune diseases in patients.

Congenital heart defect

Congenital vascular structural defects. these defects could lead to local vascular stenosis.

Autoimmune disease: Malfunction of the immune system, which will attach and damage own tissues and organs.

Infection or disease factors

Infections of various bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses, such as streptococcus or Epstein-Barr virus

Abnormal fluctuations of hormone levels in the body

Drugs or other toxic substances

Toxic side effects are caused by drug intake, such as antibiotics.

Exposure to certain toxic substances: Such as chemical ingredients, organic solvents, etc.

Lifestyle factors

Long-term smoking (including cigars and pipes) and alcoholism

Long-term sun or UV exposure

Residence in areas with severe air pollution

Long-term exposure to intensive pressure or severe mental stimulation


Clinical Symptoms Of Autoimmune Diseases


Autoimmune diseases are mainly caused by the dysfunction of the autoimmune system and attack to own tissues and organs. The clinical manifestation of different types of patients are complicated and overlap with each other. However, due to individual differences in the specific damage site and severity, they will present different clinical characteristics.



Common Symptoms

Joint bones

Persistent, polyarthritis of the affected joints

Pain, stiffness, swelling, and limited mobility in joints and bones

Stiffness in and around the joints after waking up in the morning called “morning stiffness “

Severe damage to articular cartilage and bone in severely affected patients, leading to joint deformity and loss of function, and ultimately disability

Skin and mucous membranes

Obvious rash and erythema on the skin, and may aggravate after exposure to light

Mucosal ulceration may occur in some patients, which recurs even if it could heal spontaneously

Dry mouth and eyes

Long-term and repeated skin damage may cause scarring and sclerosis of the skin tissue

Abnormal sensations on the skin surface (such as touch, temperature, etc.), unable to accurately perceive external stimuli and changes

Muscle and soft tissue

Muscles and soft tissues are damaged by chronic inflammation, causing redness, pain, and weakness

As the disease progresses, the muscles and soft tissues could be severely damaged, which can lead to muscle wasting and joint deformation.

The central neural system cannot effectively control the movement of muscles in the affected area, especially difficult to perform fine movements.

Patients may also have systemic multiorgan structural

Weakness, fatigue, fever

Anemia, leukopenia, thrombocytopenia

Gastrointestinal discomfort, loss of appetite, and severe cases may be accompanied by vomiting and diarrhea

Kidney damage can lead to proteinuria

Brain damage can cause cognitive deficits, seizures, or abnormal behaviors


Advantages Of Stem Cell Treatment For Autoimmune Diseases


At present, the clinical treatment of autoimmune disease is mainly with drug therapy, including glucocorticoids and various immunosuppressive agents. Drug therapy can only control the progression of the disease to a certain extent but cannot completely cure the disease. The immunosuppressive agents inhibit all the immune functions of the side effects and toxicity is relatively intensive.


Compared with conventional therapy, stem cell therapy has unique advantages:


Stem cell therapy

Conventional treatment

Curative Treatment or diseases management

Stem cell therapy is a new treatment for autoimmune diseases that aims to help restore normal function of the immune system by modulating immune system response and repairing/regenerating damaged cells and tissues in the body.


If you receive stem cell therapy at an early stage, it can reverse body damage caused by the immune response, thus reducing recurrence rates, freeing you from drug dependence, and even avoiding surgery.

The primary choice for autoimmune diseases is drug therapy. The main purpose of treatment is to inhibit the immune response and suppress inflammation in the body. Autoimmune diseases cannot be completely cured, and the recurrence rate is high.


When stem cells are infused back into the body, they can regulate the immune system back to normal functionality, significantly reduce the recurrence rate, and decrease the drug dosage needed. If the therapy is conducted at an early stage of the disease, it can completely reverse the drug dependence.


Stem cell experts based on your current level of disease and other comorbidities will design a customized protocol and decide, the number of stem cells, source of stem cells, and cycles of stem cell therapy.

If you choose drug therapy, you will find the dose of the drug increase slowly and gradually, and you will gradually develop resistance and require larger dosages or more powerful drugs.


No Side-effects as stem cells are our cells that are used to treat the disease and regenerate lung tissue to regain proper functioning.

Drugs may have side effects on the body, such as chest tightness, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, adverse skin reactions, and rapid decline in immune function. The side effects are tremendous.


Stem cell therapy is performed by stem cell specialists which requires a special laboratory to process the stem cells and the medical set-up to extract and inject the stem cell. 


The therapy is going to be injection-based and needs to be performed in a hospital.

It’s relatively easy to take medications, but the patient needs to take them repeatedly every day, which is prone to the development of drug dependence.


If treated in the early stage, in the long run, stem cell therapy can eliminate drug dependence, restore normal immune system functions, and return the patient to a healthy life.  After the functional recovery of the immune system, the patients can eliminate the drug dependence and significantly reduce the recurrence rate. This is a long-term effect.


If conducted at a later stage, stem cell therapy can still reduce drug dosage, and in rare cases, you might need several treatment regimens.

The effect of drug therapy is short-term, and patients need to take medications daily, once stopped, the symptoms will resume or even worsen. You need to take medications for the whole lifetime.


Stem cells are a fundamental part of our body, and the main function of stem cells is to regulate the immune system and repair/regenerate damaged cells and help you avoid surgery.

If your symptoms are severe, surgery may be necessary, but surgery only helps to remove necrotic tissue but help little to heal the disease, your disease condition remains and continue to damage your body.


How Can Stem Cell Therapy For Autoimmune Diseases Work


Immunomodulatory mechanisms: Stem cells suppress autoimmune responses and regulate immune balance by directly engaging immune cells and secreting a variety of immunoregulatory factors, therefore preventing the progression of autoimmune diseases.


Multidirectional differentiation potential: Stem cells can migrate directionally into damaged tissues and differentiate into functional cells of the corresponding tissue through the induction of tissue microenvironment, integrate with in situ cells of damaged tissues, and repair or rebuild the structure and function of damaged tissues.


Promote angiogenesis: After infusion of stem cells to the patients with damaged heart, liver, kidney, brain, and lung, capillary regeneration can be found by angiography, indicating that stem cells can promote the regeneration of blood vessels in damaged tissue and improve blood circulation.


Antioxidative stress: After the stem cells were infused into the body, the content of superoxide dismutase in the blood increased, and the apoptotic cells in the heart, liver, and kidney tissues decreased. This result confirmed that stem cells have anti-oxidative stress and anti-apoptotic effects.
