Cellular therapy of systemic sclerosis.

Curr Rheumatol Rep. 2008 Jul;10(3):189-94 Cellular therapy of systemic sclerosis. Authors: van Laar JM, Tyndall A Cell-based therapies bear promise as a means to dampen autoaggressive immune reactions and induce tolerance in patients with severe rheumatic autoimmune diseases. Of the various types of cell-based therapies, immunoablative treatment combined with autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has…
