The immune system is vital as the body's defense mechanism against foreign invaders.

These include bacteria, viruses, and even cancer cells. The cells involved in immunity find these problems and eliminate them before they cause a lot of trouble. A healthy immune system is extremely important for a vital, long life.

Occasionally, our immune system actually starts reacting to the healthy cells in our bodies. These conditions are known as autoimmune diseases.

Many of these problems are pretty well known, and include serious diseases such as: 

Rheumatoid arthritis
Hashimoto’ thyroiditis
Multiple sclerosis

Systemic lupus erythematosis
Reynaud’s disease
Inflammatory bowel disease



It's possible that systemic dosing of autologous mesenchymal stem cells and the stromal fractional gradient (the juice around the cells) can help patients reset their immune response so that some of these conditions may improve. 

At the Northern California Stem Cell Treatment Center, we are treating some patients with these conditions. We are doing so, as with all the patients we treat, within an approved study protocol so that we can add to the scientific data needed in this difficult health arena.
