08 Oct Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe For Immunocompromised Patients?
There are a growing number of immunocompromised people in the United States. In fact, about 10 million people, or 3.6% of the United States population are immunocompromised. People who are immunocompromised have weakened immune systems, thus making them more susceptible to diseases, or more susceptible to have bigger reactions to normal diseases than the average person. As stem cell therapy has become more popular among the general public in recent years, many people who are immunocompromised are wondering what the treatment means for them.
People may become immunocompromised because of infectious diseases, such as AIDS, or because their body is suffering from an unexplained autoimmune disorder. While a majority of people have immune systems that work just fine, there is still a large number of people who do suffer from immunocompromised systems. For many of these people, what others consider to be normal and routine treatments, simply are not an option. Therefore, when stem cell therapy was being touted as a revolutionary treatment for a wide variety of ailments, those who were immunocompromised were eager to find out whether or not stem cell therapy would be an option for them as well.
Stem cell therapy can be used for a wide variety of ailments from arthritis pain relief to migraine mitigation. Many people who are immunocompromised also suffer from conditions that can benefit from stem cell therapy. Fortunately, stem cell therapy is not only safe for immunocompromised patients, but it can actually help their immunocompromised condition. Stem cells are found naturally in the body, albeit there are fewer and fewer found in the body as a person ages.
As a result, injecting an immunocompromised patient with stem cells allows the cells to harness the body’s own healing power to help the body repair itself. In many cases, it is not clear what causes a compromised immune system to begin with. This can make treating the condition very difficult. However, after various clinical trials, stem cell therapy has been shown to be safe for and to help those people who are immunocompromised.
Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary new treatment technique that can help many people suffering from a wide range of ailments. When stem cell therapy first was discovered, there were a lot of uncertainties about its safety, specifically for the immunocompromised population. However, after years of research and clinical trials, stem cell therapy has been shown to be safe and effective for the general public, and the immunocompromised. With millions of people in the United States suffering from immunocompromised systems, and that number continues to grow, it is more important now than ever to find an effective therapy for that population.
Immunocompromised patients who may have had to live with pain in the past, or not been able to get vaccines, may one day have an alternate form of care. We have just hit the tip of the iceberg when it comes to understanding what stem cells are really capable of. They are providing hope for many people throughout the world.
