Scleroderma, which means “hard skin,” is a rare disease that causes tissue to become hard and thick. Affected areas usually include the skin on the arms, legs, or trunk. Scleroderma can also cause swelling or pain in the joints and muscles. In severe, life-threatening forms, tissues of the lungs, heart, kidneys, or other internal organs can also be damaged. Researchers believe the disease may be caused by your immune system attacking your own body.
Cell therapy is making powerful promises with its ability to restart the immune system, restoring the microvasculature and reducing fibrosis. Cell therapy have the ability to self-replication and differentiate into other types of cells such as muscle, cartilage, bone, fat, and neural cells.
