Stem cell treatment is a game changer in the treatment of lung diseases. The Lung Institute uses stem cells for the treatment of lung diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, interstitial lung diseases and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Stem cell treatment can be a cure for lung disease. Previously, treatments for lung diseases could only reduce the symptoms. Patients were unable to rid themselves of the terrible symptoms of lung diseases. Thanks to the Lung Institute, patients can now experience a cure from their lung disease.
The Lung Institute uses types of differentiated stem cells. According to lunginstitute.com, these stem cells are derived from the human body. These cells have plasticity. This means that the cells from one part of the body can transform their function. These transformed cells can be reintroduced into the body to stimulate lung tissues, and they are able to promote recovery of lung disease.
First, patients are evaluated as to whether they are candidates for the treatment. If it is demonstrated that the patient will benefit from the stem cell treatment, the patient begins the treatment process. The therapy is accomplished by harvesting a sample of stem cells from the blood of the patient. The Lung Institute uses highly technological instruments in order to separate the stem cells from other cells from the sample. The final process is that the concentrated stem cells are infused into the patient’s bloodstream. The patient experience is reported as positive. It is a three day process.
Innovative regenerative medicine has a promising future. The future of regenerative medicine disrupts the traditional treatment of chronic illness. Stem cell research and treatments holds the promise of re-growing stem cells that can then be used to repair organs and cure diseases. New research leads to the ability of stem cells to adopt the form and perform the function of every cell type in the body. These new medical advances require extensive research and further development.
