Dr. Joel Singer: Stem cells offer hope for aging baby boomers suffering from arthritis


By 2015 Arthritis Research UK was already investing £5 million into stem cell research and they’ve seen promising results. Clinical trials are ongoing, but these methods are already being used to help athletes recover from knee injuries faster.  Similar studies are being conducted in France, Belgium, and The Netherlands.

Asia and Australia

Great strides are being made in other areas of the world as well. Some of the most advanced research into stem cell therapy has been conducted in Asia and Australia has had a great deal of success as well. Leading Australian pharmaceutical companies are conducting research to determine just how effective regenerative stem cell therapy really is for treating rheumatoid arthritis. Patients who’ve had the treatment were still relatively pain free after two years.

Standard steroid injections used today to treat arthritis only last about 6 months. In as many as 40 percent of all cases, they don’t work at all. The success rate of stem cell injections seems to be much higher so far, which is encouraging for both doctors and patients.
