Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, considered a collection of diseases, is an auto-immune disorder in which the immune system attacks healthy tissues, especially in the joints (especially fingers, wrists, hands, and knees). Patients often develop fatigue, rash, and swollen lymph nodes, but many body parts can be affected. As with other auto-immune conditions, its common for patients to be treated with anti-inflammatory medications and immune-suppressants. Sometimes cytotoxic drugs are used for severe cases. Research is also ongoing to evaluate the effects of stem cells on auto-immune conditions.
Today, stem cell therapy is a developing method of caring for people who are battling lupus. This therapy is aimed to produce long-term results rather than quick fixes. This therapy promotes healing and tissue regeneration. It is also important to understand that the cells used for this therapy is not embryonic; the patient’s own stem cells are used.
While this form of therapy is still being researched, many scientists and health care professionals in the field believe that stem cell therapy provides hope for people with this condition. This therapy may be a viable alternative for patients who were unsuccessful with other therapies. People dealing with lupus should consult with their healthcare team to find out more about stem cell therapy.
Lupus – Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center
Our Cell Surgical Network(CSN) has developed a specific SVF deployment protocol that attempts to utilize the immuno-regulatory and anti-inflammatory properties of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors) to mitigate the effects of Lupus. SVF is deployed systemically and may require repeat dosing. This is done as an outpatient at the time of SVF harvesting and procurement. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately three hours.
We care about our patients at Gulf Coast Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center(GCSC&RMC) and take pride in the time we provide to our patients to deploy the best protocols to help our patients achieve their goals. By filling out the contact form to the right, we will answer the questions and concerns you may have about GCSC&RMC’s protocols for Lupus.
