Systemic lupus erythematosus , often abbreviated to SLE or lupus, is a chronic autoimmune connective tissue disease that can affect any part of the body. As occurs in other autoimmune diseases, the immune system attacks the body’s cells and tissue, resulting in inflammation and tissue damage. SLE most often harms the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. The course of the disease is unpredictable, with periods of illness alternating with remissions. Common initial and chronic complaints include fever, malaise, joint pains, myalgias, fatigue, and temporary loss of cognitive abilities. Because they are so often seen with other diseases, these signs and symptoms are not part of the diagnostic criteria for SLE.

Being a chronic disease with no known cure, the treatment of SLE is symptomatic. In essence, this involves preventing flares and reducing their severity and duration when they occur.
Treatment can include corticosteroids and anti-malarial drugs. In recent times, research have found stem cells to be useful for immunological conditions. ProgenCell´s Stem cell treatment for SLE consist on elevating the number of fresh non manipulated stem cells in the peripheral blood. These re-injected stem cells have the potential to duplicate and transform into new cells; they will act as a “reset” button for the immunological system, rejuvenating and replacing damaged tissue. On a surgery room, a bone marrow extraction from the hipbone or tibia bone is performed under local anesthesia (there is no pain). Once completed, the doctor will activate the stem cells with a proprietary technique and as soon as possible they will be infused with a non-invasive IV procedure. A small sample of the solution is send to a certified lab where the quantity and quality of the stem cells are verified and studied.
Expected outcome of ProgenCell treatment
The goal of the treatment is to slow down and even stop the activation of such flares, with this effect the progression is stoped preventing future damage. Also, new cells will travel all over the body collecting and distributing the information of cell function causing the immune system to get back on track as it was when conceived. There is an element of tissue repair, expect improvement of general organ function and better quality of life.
