This is early days. No clinical trials yet. Some case reports and pliot studies suggest some benefit for autoimmune in arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
There is a current clinical trial.www.medistempanama.com/feasibility-study-non-expanded-autologous-adipose-stromal-vascular-fraction-cells-dmard-resistant-rheumatoid-arthritis/
I think clinics can also offer the procedure because it is not a drug, so the review for a procedure is a different path than the review of a drug.
If the primary pathogenesis is in immune as opposed to mucosal lining or gut microbes, this could help.
Does seem fairly safe. I doubt there is any insurance coverage at this point.
