Stem Cell Therapy for Lupus
Lupus is a kind of chronic inflammatory disease in which the immune system attacks healthy organs and tissues of the body. Lupus can affect multiple body systems at a time including the brain, lungs, heart, kidneys, joints, blood cells, skin, and lungs. This ailment often becomes hard to diagnose as the signs are very similar to other diseases. There are many people, who have a tendency to develop lupus in their gene.
