Stem Cell Therapy Showing Great Promise for Patients Suffering Chronic Pulmonary Diseases

People with lung diseases suffer a diminished quality of life. It affects their breathing and causes patients to lose interest in what use to excite them. The Lung Institute has developed a therapy to combat the diseases as well as the symptoms. Stem Cell Therapy can treat lung diseases such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), chronic bronchitis, emphysema, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, pulmonary fibrosis, and pneumoconiosis.

According to PR Web, the stem cell therapy can be done two different ways. The first is by blood venous treatment. This course takes 2 days in an outpatient setting. An IV is placed and autologous, hematopoietic stem cells are taken. The stems cells are then processed, separated, and then returned back into the patient’s body. The same process is repeated on the day two as well. This is the less painful of the stem cell therapy. Bone marrow treatment is done over the course of 2 days. Bone marrow contains a larger number of adult stem cells. This results in higher patient success because of the more concentrated numbers. To get the bone marrow, it has to be aspirated. After it is collected, it is processed, separated, and then reintroduced back into the patient via IV. Once the stem cells are reintroduced, the stem cells fall to rest into the lungs where it encourages the body’s natural healing response.

The Lung Institute is the leading treatment center for chronic pulmonary diseases. They opened their doors in 2013 to help patients get some relief from chronic pulmonary disease. It was founded to treat and improve the quality of life for those that suffer chronic pulmonary issues. Traditional treatment plans aimed at the symptoms versus the actual illness. These treatment plans often come with horrible side effects. But the Lung Institute changed that, targeting the illness so that the symptoms would be relieved.

Their approach is by using stem cells. These stem cells are taken from the patient and then reintroduced back into the patient to promote a natural healing. The stem cell therapy eases the symptoms and slows the progression of the disease. To learn more, visit
