Regenerative Medicine for Lupus

Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus or SLE) is an autoimmune disease. In this and related conditions, the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues, leading to inflammation, pain, swelling, and tissue destruction. Most patients with lupus experience symptoms in the joints of the hands, fingers, wrists, and knees. However, this disorder also often presents with other symptoms, such as a characteristic rash, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, and fever. Lupus is usually treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, but there is no known cure. However, cutting-edge approaches are being studied. 

Stem Cell Research and Lupus

The Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center has adopted a lupus protocol that utilizes the anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating properties of adult stem cells. It involves harvesting a small amount of fat from the patient in a liposuction procedure, separating and concentrating the stem cells, and delivering them back into the patient’s body by intravenous infusion. This is done on an outpatient basis by our board-certified surgeon and medical team. The process takes about three hours from start to finish.

At the Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center, we are committed not only to quality care for our patients with lupus but also to clinical stem cell research and the advancement of regenerative medicine. We are proud to be part of the only Investigational Review Board (IRB)-based stem cell treatment network in the United States that utilizes fat-transfer surgical technology. We have an array of ongoing IRB-approved protocols, and we provide care for patients with a wide variety of disorders that may be treated with adult stem cell-based regenerative therapy. Not all cases of lupus respond to stem cell therapy, and each patient must be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimal results from this regenerative medicine process.
