shows its benefit by improving the healing process of complex perianal fistulas
in patients suffering from Crohn's disease. It comes as an injection form which
contains expanded adipose stem cells about 5 million cells/ml. After the
administration of Darvadstrocel, it decreases the release of pro-inflammatory
cytokines at the inflammation sites. Due to this immunoregulatory activity,
inflammation is greatly reduced which helps the tissues around the fistula to
‘Crohn’s disease patients who suffer from a common complication of perianal fistula are treated with a new advanced treatment containing Darvadstrocel which offers quick healing process by interfering with the inflammatory mediators.
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) had
approved Darvadstrocel stem
in treating adult patients with perianal fistula
presented with a non-active or mildly active luminal Crohn's disease, only when
other treatment choices showed no response.
It is highly
recommended that only medical specialists should be engaged in selecting
Darvadstrocel therapy or those who are experienced in diagnosing and treating
