Mesenchymal Stromal Stem Cells for the Treatment of SLE

Previous studies conducted in China have shown mesenchymal stromal stem cells have the potential to treat patients with lupus and the more severe SLE. However, the results seen in these trials are in patients of similar ethnic backgrounds. New results, of a proof-of-concept study conducted in Spain, were published in Lupus in October, 2018, and support the use of MSCs for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in patients with different ethnicities. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a systemic autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system mistakenly attacks your own healthy tissues and organs. The Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica, uses human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus. Study Design The study, “Therapeutic potential of allogeneic mesenchymal stromal cells transplantation for lupus nephritis,” showed MSCs can control the symptoms of SLE in three patients of different ethnicities who were diagnosed

Can Depression Increase the Risk of Developing Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)?

In a 20-year study of more than 194,000 women, researchers found women with a history of depression have a 2-fold increased risk of developing SLE when compared to women with no history of depression.  Systemic lupus erythematosus is a systemic autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system mistakenly attacks your healthy tissue and organs. Inflammation caused by SLE can affect your joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs. The Stem Cells Transplant Institute uses adult mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of SLE. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities. However, stem cell treatments are legal in Costa Rica.

Can rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or lupus increase the risk of developing dementia?

Rheumatic disease is a medical term used to describe many different diseases that affect the joints, muscles and tissues. Some diseases such as osteoarthritis are a result of wear and tear while other diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, are a result of a problem with the immune system. Stem cell therapy at the Stem Cells Transplant Institute may help reduce the symptoms of rheumatic diseases such as: Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities.
