ProgenCell success stories: Scleroderma

A forty-four-year-old man came to us with scleroderma in 2008. His disease had already progressed several years by then and his skin had become hardened almost like cardboard. He was unable to turn his head because of the tightness of his neck and speech was difficult because of tightness of his lips. He had only limited movement in his hands and fingers and complained of pain in his joints and back as well as depression.
The patient submitted to three procedures the first year and felt that they were of so much benefit he asked for three more. He reported noticeable improvement after his second procedure. Now that he has had six procedures, his disease is in remission. He reports no pain, his hands have returned to normal, and he describes the skin on his face as “beautiful”.
Scleroderma often occurs in conjunction with other autoimmune diseases such as lupus erythematosus and polymyositis. It is a potentially fatal disease with no known cure and no specific treatment. Before the advent of stem cell therapy, doctors tended to prescribe anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive medications as palliatives – but today we see the hope of recovery. Scleroderma patients can begin their recovery now by contacting ProgenCell for a complimentary case evaluation.
