Autoimmune hepatitis is an inflammatory autoimmune disease of the liver. It often occurs with other autoimmune conditions such as scleroderma, lupus, Crohn’s, and Graves thyroid disease. Patients experience fatigue, loss of appetite, itching, and abdominal distension. Treating with corticosteroids is the standard of care, but hepatitis may cause cirrhosis (scarring) and eventually lead to liver failure. Your liver is the largest organ inside your body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons. The immune system normally protects people from infection by identifying and destroying bacteria, viruses, and other potentially harmful foreign substances. A new study from Germany indicates that it is important to establish the diagnosis before cirrhosis develops. Research is ongoing to evaluate the effects of stem cells on autoimmune conditions. Use of stem cells to cure liver diseases has been proved beneficial in most of the conditions. The emergence of new therapies will require the development of a collaborative network of clinical and basic investigators, as the complexity and specificity of current management problems require solutions that exceed the capabilities of single institutions.
Auto-Immune Hepatitis – Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center
Our Cell Surgical Network(CSN) has developed a specific SVF deployment protocol for hepatitis that attempts to utilize the potential immune-modulatory, anti-inflammatory, and regenerative properties of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors). SVF is deployed systemically and may require repeat dosing. This is done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately three hours.
We care about our Autoimmune Hepatitis patients at Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center(GCSC&RMC) and take pride in the time we provide to our patients to deploy the best protocols to help our patients achieve their goals.
