Systemic lupus erythematosus, commonly shortened to SLE and lupus, is a persistent autoimmune connective tissue illness which could influence any part of the body. As takes place in different autoimmune illnesses, the auto-immune system attacks the body's cells and tissue, leading to irritation and tissue deterioration.
SLE in most cases damages the heart, knees, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system.The course of the disorder is unforeseen, with sessions of disease changing with remissions.
Common first and long-term problems involve fever, malaise, joint pains, myalgias, fatigue, and short-term loss of mental abilities. Since they are so frequently seen with different diseases, these warnings are not part of the diagnostic requirements for SLE.
Being an ongoing illness without known remedy, the cure for SLE is symptomatic. Essentially, this includes avoiding flares and minimizing their gravity and period when they happen.
Remedy can incorporate corticosteroids and anti-malarial pills. In recent times, investigation have discovered stem cells to be effective for immunological diseases. ProgenCell´s Stem cell remedy for SLE include on raising the quantity of fresh non altered stem cells in the peripheral blood.
All these re-injected stem cells have the potency to replicate and become new cells; they would behave as a "reset" switch for the immunological process, revitalizing and substituting harmed tissue.
On a surgery room, a bone marrow extraction from the hipbone or tibia bone is conducted under local anesthesia (no pain).
When done, the doctor will activate the stem cells with minimal manipulation and immediately they will be infused with a non-invasive IV method. A tiny sample of the mixture is send to a specialized lab where the volume and quality of the stem cells are tested and analyzed.
- Pre-treatment conditioning (stem cell colony stimulation)

ADD-ON: Stem cell expansion (culture and cryopreservation) - $2,650
- Highly specialized Stem cell isolation process
- Stem cell culture for 6 months, producing up to 5 doses for future use.
- Cryopreservation process
- Cryopreserved doses storage for 1 year
- Contamination scan and monitoring
- Lab Fees (Chemists, doctors, etc)
- Lab instruments and equipment
- Can be performed on adipose tissue or bone marrow
- Reduces cost of each subsecuent treatmens by aproximately $3,400
Add this optional process to your initial stem cell treatment and use them in future treatments. Besides reducing your physical recovery time and discomfort (avoiding future stem cell aspirations); it reduces your future expenses by lowering your cost for future treatments and by lowering your travel expenses shortening your travel time.
The objective of the therapy is to reduce and stop the activation of such flares, using this effect the progression is stoped avoiding future harm. Also, new cells will travel throughout the system gathering and submitting the information of cell function triggering the defense mechanisms to resume track as it was when created. There is an element of tissue fix, anticipate development of universal organ functionality and finer quality of life.
