Arthritis of the Hand and Wrist With Stem Cells


Arthritis is a debilitating and painful condition that can affect any joint in the body. The hands and wrists are some of the most commonly affected joints, and the pain and stiffness can make everyday activities very difficult. There is no cure for arthritis, but there are treatments that can help to manage the symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. One such treatment is the use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs are a type of stem cell that can be found in many tissues in the body, including the bone marrow. They have the ability to differentiate into a variety of cell types, including cartilage cells. There is evidence that MSCs can help to repair damaged cartilage and reduce the symptoms of arthritis. In one study, MSCs were injected into the joints of rats with arthritis. The rats that received the MSCs had less joint damage and less pain than the rats that did not receive the MSCs. In another study, MSCs were injected into the joints of people with arthritis. The people who received the MSCs had less pain and improved function in their joints. MSCs are a promising treatment for arthritis, but more research is needed to confirm their efficacy. If you are considering MSC therapy for your arthritis, be sure to consult with your doctor to see if it is right for you.
