Hello, welcome to HCM. Autoimmune hepatitis occurs when body's own immunity begins to attack liver cells and destroy them. It is treated with the help of steroids which lower the body's immune response. But they can not help liver regenerate if the damage is intense. Even though liver has large potential for re growth stem cells can be used for regenerating liver cells in case the disease has progressed to irreparable levels. But the stem cell therapy will n ot prevent the immune response from acting against new cells. Wish you good health.

Liver transplantation in autoimmune hepatitis is considered in patients with hepatic failure unresponsive to corticosteroid/immunosuppressive treatment, decompensated cirrhosis with an End-Stage Liver Disease. Advantage of Umbilical cord stem cells is that it is easily available and success has been seen even with partial HLA match. However, in autoimmune hepatitis chances of recurrences are there even with stem cell therapy.
