Clinical Update: Why PRP Should Be Your First Choice for Injection Therapy in Treating Osteoarthritis of the Knee

The purpose of this review is to update the reader on the current applications of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis (KOA).

Recent research into the applications of PRP for KOA has further indicated both the efficacy and safety of PRP treatment. Although research has shown a tendency toward better efficacy at earlier stages of osteoarthritis (OA), evidence exists to indicate positive effects at all stages of OA. In summary, since KOA is an extremely prevalent condition that can be a challenge to treat, it is imperative that safe and effective nonoperative treatment methods be available to individuals that are suffering from this condition.

Combating Osteoarthritis through Stem Cell Therapies by Rejuvenating Cartilage: A Re-view

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic degenerative disorder which could be distinguished by erosion of articular cartilage, pain, stiffness, and crepitus. Not only aging-associated alterations but also the metabolic factors such as hyperglycemia, dyslipidemia, and obesity affect articular tissues and may initiate or exacerbate the OA. The poor self-healing ability of articular cartilage due to limited regeneration in chondrocytes further adversely affects the osteoarthritic microenvironment. Traditional and current surgical treatment procedures for OA are limited and incapable to reverse the damage of articular cartilage. To overcome these limitations, cell-based therapies are currently being employed to repair and regenerate the structure and function of articular tissues. These therapies not only depend upon source and type of stem cells but also on environmental conditions, growth factors, and chemical and mechanical stimuli. Recently, the pluripotent and various multipotent mesenchymal stem cells have been employed for OA therapy, due to their differentiation potential towards chondrogenic lineage. Additionally, the stem cells have also been supplemented with growth factors to achieve higher healing response in osteoarthritic cartilage. In this review, we summarized the current status of stem cell therapies in OA pathophysiology and also highlighted the potential areas of further research needed in regenerative medicine.

Review & Testimonials/Case Examples

“I’m 73 yo and have torn meniscus and OA. 3 orthos told me I needed knee replacement. Heard about stem cell and had umbilical stem cells injected then my PRP injected a month later. My knee doesn’t hurt nor buckle any more. It does still get ‘tired’ and a little sore but it’s only been about 6 wks since stem cells. … I still have personal trainers but all exercises are done while I’m seated.”

Introduction About the Topic

What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system of an individual creates antibody and cellular responses to components of the joint, like type 1 collagen. Because of this, the joint is destroyed. Other complications also arise such as renal damage, pulmonary fibrosis, and even damage to the heart.


Current Treatment at Other Clinics

Rheumatoid arthritis is usually treated with immune suppressants such as gold, cyclosporine, methothrexate, and infliximab. These treatments only cause a temporary improvement in the condition, and despite this, they have a number of disadvantages, the major ones being random suppression of immune responses. When DMARDs such as methotrexate prove ineffective, then biologics such as adalimumab, entanercept, or abatacept may be administered. However, these treatments on their own do not address the damage that has been done to the extra-articular tissues or joints.

Even though modern treatment protocols for rheumatoid arthritis have improved patient prognosis, it is on record that no less than 50 percent of patients do not get the desired clinical response.

Current treatment involves using medications and at times injection.  These treatments are considered a patch up of the problem without treating the root cause of the problem.  Medications & steroids have many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar from steroids, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer.  Surgery can be very debilitating with prolong downtime during recovery requiring at times prolonged bed rest & even residing in nursing home for recovery.  It also entails a lot of risk including risk of infection, bleeding, poor surgical outcome to name a few.  Stem cells however, reduce the inflammation and pain that are typical of these conditions. Current ongoing research on the effect of stem cells has shown positive results.

We are different from many other clinics who offer stem cell or PRP.   Other may also not offer option of bone marrow derived stem cell, Adipose derived stem cell & umbilical cord stem cell.  They in effect expose patients to more invasive treatments like drilling bones without offering other easier options.  They also may use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections that can be easily avoided in most cases by using ultrasound.  Furthermore, they may not have proper knowledge of how other modalities can enhance the effects of Stem Cells.  These other modalities are used by us to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint. 

Safe Non Surgical Option

We use a combination of newest cutting edge technology in regenerative medicine to stimulate body’s own repair ability to reverse aging and damage.   We use Stem Cells as part of treatment plan designed by the doctor to treat the body.    These are safe investigational treatments that have shown very promising & safe results in thousands of treatments over the 10-20 years in Europe and USA.   They don’t involve using any medications or drugs.  

 

What Does Stem Cell Therapy Do?


The researchers believe that the therapy works by:

Releasing cytokines into the body to prevent further damage and inflammation.

Preventing inflammation that can make the disease worse.

Creating healthy new tissues or missing or damaged products in body.

Many patients experience improvements in the treated area and other areas, like in a Mayo Clinic study where patients benefited in both knees after experiencing injections in only one.

WHAT EFFECTS DOES STEM CELL HAVE ON THE TREATMENT OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS?

Stem cell therapy induces healing in various forms of arthritis. This has been experimented with in animals. For instance, Vet-Stem, a Vet Company uses stem cells to accelerate healing in horses with joint deformities. Apart from healing of damaged or injured tissues, stem cells also have the ability to regulate immune-system activity so as to ward off pathological responses while retaining their protective function.

Stem cells, mostly mesenchymal cells help in the production of anti-inflammatory agents. These mediators have local action and do not suppress the patient’s immune system as a whole. Also, stem cells stimulate the production of T-regulatory cells. These are specific immune cells whose function is to guard against autoimmune attacks.

A research carried out recently on mesenchymal stem cells for rheumatoid arthritis has shown that mesenchymal stem cells causes a drastic decrease in TNF-α and IL-6, both pro-inflammatory cytokines temporarily targeted by a number of current treatments for rheumatoid arthritis. The mesenchymal stem cells does this function without any known side effects.

Through stem cell administration, we have noticed improvements in RA cases at our facilities.

WHAT TYPE OF STEM CELLS DO WE USE FOR THE TREATMENT OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS?

We use stem cells from human umbilical cord tissue (allogenic mesenchymal stem cells), bone marrow or fat cell stem cells. The mesenchymal stem cells are derived from umbilical donated after normal, healthy births. The medical history of each mother is screened. Test for infectious diseases is done, and each family gives their consent before donating. Bone marrow or fat cell stem cells are used from the same body of the patient. 

All stem cells derived from umbilical cords are screened for infectious ailments. Screening is done to International Blood Bank Standards prior to usage.

As a matter of fact, a very low percentage of donated umbilical cords scale through this screening process.

What makes our facility special?

At our Los Angeles facility, we have invented modern approaches to medical care. Our approach to treatment is second to none. The harvesting process does not involve any form of drilling, and the stem cells are purified and tested for quality before injection. We also employ ultrasound to help in the precise location of high dose stem cells at the required site. These cells will then perform their duty, promoting the formation of new tissues. We are experts in this and has seen positive outcome with our treatments. Our licensed physicians have undergone intense training running into thousands of hours, and so, you can be sure that you are in safe hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

From where do stem cells originate?

Stem cells are present in many tissues and organs. The bone marrow is the richest source of stem cells. However, the most convenient region for harvesting is the umbilical cord.

How are adult stem cells harvested?

The physician draws the stem cells from the umbilical cord. The stem cells and the growth factors will then be concentrated using specially designed equipment. The physician then injects the cells into the destined regions.

What’s the Cost of Stem Cell Injection?

The cost of treatment depends on the procedure performed.  We often offer discounts for returning customers or larger packages of treatment using repeated injections or combining different treatments.  We also offer a price match policy on comparing treatments done by board certified physicians.  We also have interest free payment plan options including care credit for qualifying patients. A limited number of insurance companies and Workers compensation may at times cover some of the expenses.  You may be able to get reimbursed by your insurance for your doctor visits & ultrasound cost. The consultation fee can be deducted from your future procedures, making your consolation free of cost to you.

Book a consultation with our experts to see the type of procedure that is right for you.
