On previously and looks like may have to go back on soon. I believe it works but RA Dr. and I are waiting another 6 weeks to see if Methotrexate alone will cut it!

It helps the Orencia a bit. But bothers my liver so I am on it 2/3 days. It seems to help keep the high enzymes under control.

A new hope for rheumatoid arthritis and joint arthritis patients is a new line of treatment in medicine .. even though we still want more and more from this type of therapy .. initial results of stem cell therapy are wonderful and promise us with more.

The idea in stem cell therapy is to use the primitive body cells - present at some areas in the body- converting them into the targeted cells which may be cartilage cells , muscle cells ..... etc.

The stem cells are used in generating cartilage between bones instead of the damaged one , absence of cartilage causes articulation of both bones directly resulting in pain to the patient which may be so severe to force him to stop movement,

At this new line of treatment there is no surgery , no steriod injection ..and you can find more and interesting information with Dr.Purita at this site ....
