Lupus is a chronic inflammatory condition in which the immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks healthy tissue. Under normal function, the immune system creates antibodies to protect against antigens such as viruses and bacteria. Lupus, however, prevents the immune system from being able to differentiate between healthy tissue and antigens. It directs antibodies to attack both, resulting in widespread symptoms including inflammation and swelling. Lupus can affect many systems throughout the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, blood, heart, and lungs.
Because its symptoms closely resemble those seen in many other conditions, lupus can be challenging to diagnose. With that being said, one common distinctive sign is the butterfly wing rash across the cheeks. Still, there are many types of lupus, each with varying symptoms. Even different cases can have unique symptoms, some of which can be temporary. Subacute cutaneous lupus can manifest as a result of sun exposure, while drug-induced lupus is brought on by medication. While researchers aren’t sure exactly what causes most cases of lupus, it is believed to be due to a combination of hereditary, environmental, and hormonal factors.
No two cases of lupus are exactly alike. Most people with lupus experience cycles of symptoms called flares, along with periods of wellness, called remission. Currently, most treatments consist only of medications that treat symptoms and suppress the immune system to delay abnormal responses. Unfortunately, as with any mediations, these drugs may also have side effects of their own. Some physicians also recommend lifestyle modifications as a means of minimizing lupus symptoms, including eating a balanced diet and reducing stress.
For inflammatory conditions such as lupus, medical experts are increasingly exploring Regenerative Medicine therapies to have immunomodulatory effects on patients’ cells. In lupus, for example, stem cells can be used to calm T-cells and B-cells to no longer mount a response against healthy tissue. Stem cells are a form of Regenerative Medicine which have been shown to help most patients enjoy long remission periods. Because stem cells lack co-stimulatory models, they are also capable of avoiding detection by the immune system, which is especially advantageous in autoimmune diseases.
