But before discovering the use of stem cells for autoimmune disease treatment, clinicians would use anti-inflammatory drugs, potent immunosuppressive and immunomodulatory agents, and inhibitor proteins systematically.
However, researchers have also thought about the use of stem cells to treat autoimmune disorders. According to the National Institutes of Health, one approach assessed this through early clinical trials of patients with lupus, a severe disease affective multiple organs in the body, including skin, muscles, joints, kidneys, brain, and nerves. 90 percent of the people that have lupus are women.
The objective of hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) for lupus is to eliminate the mature, long-lived, and auto-reactive immune cells to generate a new, well-functioning immune system.
As research and clinical trials progressed, HSCT has now become an effective treatment for autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, and systematic sclerosis. It has improved patient outcomes and their quality of life. However, research continues for the refinement of HSCT and its mechanisms of action in autoimmune disease.
