Stem Cells and immune disorders
How can stem cell therapy be beneficial in the treatment of immune disorders?
An immune disorder is a dysfunction of the immune system. Disorders of the innate or adaptive immunity usually occurs in early childhood and often lead to serious or fatal complications. These disturbances affect development and/or function of different cells in the immune system.
Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID, all types)-SCID is a group of inherited immune system disorders that are present at birth. They can become life-threatening within the first year of life if left untreated.
When used in a transplant the stem cells from cord blood can help rebuild a new healthy immune system in the patient in need.
