Stem Cell Therapy can Successfully Treat Lung Disease

Stem cell therapy can be an effective treatment option for those whom suffer from chronic lung disease. This type of therapy has been successfully used in treating COPD, Chronic Bronchitis, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Pneumoconiosis, Emphysema, Interstitial Lung Disease and Bronchiectasis. A population of stem cells can be readily separated from other cells found in a patient’s blood and bone marrow. This special population of cells has the unique ability to turn into any other type of cell in the body. When the stem cells are intravenously returned to the body they will get trapped in the lungs. Once trapped, the stem cells begin to naturally heal the lungs. Unlike traditional treatment options, this regenerative treatment option has the ability to treat more than just the symptoms and promote healing.

The Lung Institute is one of the leading stem cell treatment centers. Here, doctors have developed a successful stem cell therapy protocol for the treatment of lung disease. The protocol uses one of two types of treatments for the collection of stem cells. The first separates out the stem cells from the blood over a course of two days. The second type of cell collection comes from the patient’s bone marrow. Bone marrow collection has a higher patient success rate because more stem cells can be isolated. Once the stem cells are isolated and processed they can then be returned to the patient’s body to treat the disease. The whole treatment process is minimally invasive and can be performed on an outpatient basis over three days. In a report by LifeStlesAfter50, patients who have been successfully treated with stem cell therapy have noticed improved lung function in just a few weeks. Recent advances in the stem cell therapy protocol, developed by The Lung Institute, have minimized associated negative side effects.
