INNOVATIVE THERAPY FOR LUPUS
*Note: For the investigational use of Adipose Tissue for clinical research and deployment.
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, considered a collection of diseases, is an autoimmune 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 autoimmune conditions, anti-inflammatory medications and immune-suppressants are used commonly for treatment. Sometimes cytotoxic drugs are used for severe cases. This debilitating disease is painful and unbearable. Some patients with lupus have suicidal thoughts due to their life-threatening symptoms. FDA-approved drugs to control lupus symptoms for the past 40 years have been antimalarial drugs, azathioprine, cyclophosphamide, and prednisone.
Cells From Adipose Tissue And Lupus
A successful treatment for lupus should balance the disease as the symptoms flare and subside. However, until recently this balance was not met with traditional treatment and therapies. We have found that with a patient’s own adult cells, there is new hope for the intractable autoimmune disease. It has been confirmed that intravenous administration of adult cells can restore normal bodily function to tissue and organs affected by lupus, also reducing or eliminating the need for steroid and immunosuppressant medications.
Undifferentiated adult cells have the ability to change into the cells of many organs and tissues in the body. Useful in countless therapies, they repair damaged fiber and revitalize failing cells through cell division, a process in which they multiply indefinitely. The science of this innovative therapy has improved greatly over recent years with much progress being made in new treatment possibilities.
