Benefits of stem cells
Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissues and organs. This response creates inflammation in many parts of the body, including the joints, kidneys, brain, heart, and lungs.
Lupus can also affect the skin and cause a rash or other types of skin changes. Approximately two out of every three people with lupus will develop some form of skin disease, known as cutaneous lupus erythematosus.
It can damage joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and the brain, causing muscle pain, fever, and red rashes on the skin.
The potential of mesenchymal stem cells to treat lupus has been confirmed.
Scientists have successfully tested mesenchymal stem cell therapy in patients with lupus erythematosus.
Patients who do not respond to standard treatments were treated monthly with stem cells and experienced a reduction in symptoms.
The therapy involves the intravenous introduction of 90 million mesenchymal stem cells.
