Watch one of our Graft vs Host Program success stories below!

“I have tried different medicines, chiropractors, different types of massage, physical therapy. It’s been 11 years.”

“Most important to me, Dr. Sherrell listens. I can tell him where it hurts and he will treat that spot. It’s my body I know how I feel and where I hurt and he’s willing to listen to that.”

What is Host vs Graft Disease?

GvHD means the graft reacts against the host. The graft is the marrow or stem cells from the donor. The host is the person having the transplant. 

GvHD happens when particular types of white blood cell (T cells) in the donated stem cells or bone marrow attack your own body cells. This is because the donated cells (the graft) see your body cells (the host) as foreign and attack them.

Normally T cells don’t attack our own body cells, because they recognise proteins on the cells called HLA (human leukocyte antigens). We inherit our HLA from our parents. Apart from identical twins, HLA is unique to each person.

Before a stem cell transplant or bone marrow transplant you and your donor have blood tests to check how closely your HLA matches. This test is called tissue typing. If you and your donor have very similar HLA this lowers the chance of GvHD. The more differences there are between your HLA and your donor’s, the more likely you are to get GvHD.

After a transplant your bone marrow starts making new blood cells from the donor stem cells. These new blood cells have the donor’s HLA pattern. They recognise the HLA pattern on your body cells as different (foreign) and may begin to attack some of them.

At Augusta Acupuncture Clinic, we understand that there are many factors to an autoimmune disease. Instead of having a standard protocol for all autoimmune diseases, we create a custom health plan for you.
