Stem Cells

2 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know any info about Stem Cells and Scleroderma and also what type of Scleroderma you have to have to qualify, and also at what stage of the disease do you have to be in for you to be able to get it.

I live in Australia and there is not much info here!

Oh and how much does it cost?

Sorry for all the questions.

Kind Regards

CEd

Ced,
There are several current clinical trials in the US using stem cells for scleroderma. We currently have a member into the process so he'll be able to provide information such as cost.

Here in ISN we have a page on these trials - Stem Cells Transplant

This is a new and exciting treatment for sclero and many of us have our eyes on the outcomes. I hope this information helps.

Big Hugs,
