Creative Biolabs has the most professional platform in terms of drug research of autoimmune diseases. We aim to help customers around the world solve the problem of drug development for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Introduction to Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

SLE is one of the commonest autoimmune diseases affecting young and middle-aged females. The patient's lymphocytes go out of control and attack the body's tissues. It can involve almost every organ. Much information about the genetic background of the pathogenesis and environmental risk factors for SLE has been revealed in recent years, and this can partly explain the diverse nature of the disease. Although survival of SLE patients has improved in recent years, a small part of patients still develops progressive therapy-refractory disease.

Treatment of SLE

Patients with SLE usually need a life-long treatment in both light and severe clinical presentation of the disease. In the current condition, immunomodulatory agents, hydroxychloroquine, cyclophosphamide, biologic agents, and glucocorticoids are recommended for the treatment of SLE. While these drugs work for some patients, they do not work for others and can even make the condition worse.

  • B Cells
  • Due to limited treatment options, new and novel therapeutic approaches are necessary. Because B cells have an active role in the pathophysiology of SLE, scientists believe that B cells also show an attractive target for therapies evolving in the autoimmune diseases field. The eradication of B cells, along with the potential for T cell persistence, has resulted in prolonged remission or stable disease. Amongst these, immune effector cell therapies, including chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy, have proven beneficial in targeting B cells.

  • Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT)
  • Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (AHSCT) has been proposed as a treatment modality that may arrest the autoimmune disease process and lead to sustained treatment-free remissions. There was general agreement among experts in this field, that in patients with severe SLE refractory to conventional immunosuppressive therapies, AHSCT can achieve sustained clinical remissions (ranging from 50-70% disease-free survival at 5 years).
