This is not a cure. It's a potential treatment for UC that will take 7-10 years to come onto the market. The reporting of this news item is very poor and at places inaccurate and incorrect. Someone labelled it a cure in the press and it has snow-balled.
800 mg Asacol a day
500 mg Asacol suppository now and then!
Fibre supplement, Iron supplment,Probioitcs
Balanced Diet, Reduced Stress

This sounds alot like Revimmune.

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/64250.php

It's not stem cells, but they basically reboot ones immune system by killing it off. It doesn't kill the stem cells in bone marrow and it rebuilds off that. Takes 2-3 weeks for it to rebuild.

"Developed by Dr. Richard Jones, Dr. Robert Brodsky, and colleagues at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Revimmune works by temporarily eliminating peripheral immune cells, including the immune cells causing the autoimmunity, while selectively sparing the stem cells in the bone marrow. Investigators at Hopkins discovered that stem cells uniquely have high levels of a particular protective enzyme that can be measured in advance of therapy, which makes them impervious to Revimmune, and allows the surviving stem cells to give rise to the new immune system over 2 to 3 weeks. The newly reconstituted peripheral immune system typically lacks the misdirected immunity to self-antigens, which is characteristic of autoimmune diseases."
