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.

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

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 hist
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

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

What can stem cell therapy potentially treat?
Stem cell therapy is beneficial to a number of conditions such as osteoarthritis, erectile dysfunction, joint pain, renal disease, neurological disorders, autism, cellular rejuvenation, etc.
