Stem Cell Treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis at Stem Cell Institute Panama - Arminda Bourin



Arminda Bourin has suffered from rheumatoid arthritis since 2003. She underwent adult stem cell therapy at the Stem Cell Institute in February 2012 because her swollen, painful ankles made it very difficult for her to walk. This interview takes place approximately one year after treatment.

Before coming to Panama, Ms. Bourin tried everything from anti-inflammatory and auto-immune medication to homeopathy and finally surgery on her left ankle, "Which I regret because if I had waited [until after the stem cell therapy], it would not have been necessary. The other foot with the same symptoms is now better without any surgery. I think it was the stem cells."

Ms. Bourin learned about the Stem Cell Institute from her husband's cousin, Judi Lecoq. Judy received treatment for multiple sclerosis and, "...told us how wonderful the treatment was and that she was so much better."

Regarding the doctors, staff and clinic, "They are wonderful. Everybody has been so kind."

Upon being asked, "Has this treatment changed your life?" Ms. Bourin responded, "Well, yes. I was not walking too much. I needed a wheelchair. It was painful anyway. So to be able to go shopping, that's a miracle!"

The budding field of regenerative medicine will need a consistent source of stem cells in addition to cytokine growth factors. Fat stem cells signify an abundant source of adult stem cells with the ability to differentiate into many types of cell types. A range of clinical trials have shown the regenerative ability of adipose-derived stem cells in medical fields such as plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and cardiac surgery. In the field of regenerative medicine, research and preclinical studies are performed to beat clinical limitations with the help of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
