Stem Cells – Lung Disease Treatment
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and stem cell therapy have recently gained popularity. The most common diseases include: emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Usually damage to the lungs due to COPD are not reversible. If you have symptoms such as: wheezing, constant cough and shortness of breath, you may be suffering from lung disease. Administering stem cell therapy for COPD does show promise, however, we want all potential patients to be aware of any center which guarantees results. Stem cell therapy for lung disease has not been evaluated and is not FDA approved.
Types of Stem Cells
There are many different types of stem cells and each are formed during different stages of our lives. Each stem cell serves a different purpose and depending upon where and when they were derived, they may or may not succesfully treat a particular condition. Once stem cells are extracted, they are sent to the lab for purification and quality control before being re-injected or administered (via IV) back into your body. Cells from bone marrow and fat have the potential of becoming and or repairing different damaged cells types such as: lung, nerve, heart muscle, liver or cartilage cells. Fat derived stem cells have also shown promise with autoimmune diseases such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
- Adult Stem Cells
- Embryonic Stem Cell
- Bone Marrow Stem Cells
- Fat Derived Stem Cells
- Neural Stem Cells
It is important to understand that stem cells derived from specific parts of the body may or may not be successful in treating the same or different parts of the body. Combination stem cell therapies may be needed and there is a chance your condition may not improve.
