Lupus may be a disease involving only the skin or it can be more generalized with major immune dysfunction resulting in systemic changes to the kidneys, bone marrow, joints, brain, gastrointestinal tract and heart.
Some patients may get partial palliative improvement with a number of existing treatments. However, if lupus continues to progress despite these therapies, the introduction of stem cells and specific immunotherapies may result in a profound improvement.
