Basics of Stem Cell Therapy

Published Post author

Being diagnosed with a lung disease can be a scary prognosis. Not having the ability to breathe as well as you have in the past can be frightening and even frustrating. The Lung Institute has developed a number of therapies and treatments to help those who are suffering from major pulmonary conditions, such as COPD, lung disease, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis.

A new therapy that has been recently introduced and increasing in popularity is the use of stem cells. Stem cells have the ability to re-create any new type of tissue in the body. Stem cells have the remarkable potential to evolve into different cell types within the adult body. Not only are they able to renew themselves through cell division, but they are also able to become tissue specific cells with special functions. This is exactly the case for stem cell therapy for chronic lung conditions.

There are three steps The Lung Institute uses when implementing stem cells for lung disease patients: harvesting, separation, and returning. When the stem cells are harvested, a small blood or bone marrow sample is acquired from the patient to determine correct blood type and matching. The cells are then separated, and the last step is to return them to the bloodstream of the patient. When the stem cells have been integrated into the patient’s bloodstream, the healing process can begin and the patient’s outlook will begin to improve. https://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Patients/Programs-and-Services/Lung-Institute/

The Lung Institute has placed hours and hours of research into using stem cell research to help chronic lung sufferers. Placing your trust in The Lung Institute will help assuage your fears as you enter into this unknown chapter of your life.
