A pilot clinical trial showed that bioelectronic medicine treatment was effective in reducing fatigue and pain in lupus patients. The researchers also saw a decrease in arthritis. A pilot study is a small-scale preliminary study that examines the feasibility of an approach that researchers intend to use in a larger scale study.
Bioelectronic medicine uses device technology to read and modulate the electrical activity within the body’s nervous system, opening new doors to real-time diagnostics and treatment options for patients.
Nerve-stimulating or nerve-blocking devices, either implanted on a nerve or held against the skin, have the potential to modulate specific nerve activity, elicit a specific change in organ function, and restore health, without the complicated side effects of pharmaceutical agents.
