Mesenchymal Stem Cell Infusion a Possible Therapy for Crohn’s Fistulas, Review Study Suggests
While current treatments for fistulas in Crohn's disease patients have often led to unsatisfactory results, new stem cell-based therapies, specifically mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), have shown great potential, a review analysis has found. The study, “Mesenchymal Stem Cells to Treat Crohn's Disease with Fistula,” was published in the journal Human Gene Therapy. Crohn’s disease patients often develop fistulas, and anorectal fistulas are the most common type. Treatment for fistulas includes surgery — such as fistulotomy, ligation therapy, and
