Lung Disease Suffers Find Hope in Stem Cell Therapy

Chronic lung disease such as COPD, interstitial lung disease, and idiopathic interstitial disease also known as pulmonary fibrosis affect people both physically and mentally. The quality of life is substantially decreased as these diseases progress, but the Lung Institute now has a way to help those affected other than just treat the symptoms.

As the leading treatment center for lung disease, the Lung Institute, up until recently could only offer their patients help in treating their symptoms to make everyday life a little easier. Common tasks for someone with chronic lung disease become very difficult and as the physical symptoms progress the patient’s mental health declines also. Often the treatments used will produce side effects that can be difficult to deal with for the patient making their illness more mentally challenging.

The good news according to now for patients suffering from these chronic lung diseases is that the

Lung Institute has discovered and is using a new treatment called Stem Cell Therapy. The Lung Institute offers these treatments for all major pulmonary illness. With the use of Stem Cell Therapy, the progression of these illnesses can be significantly slowed down, and the bodies natural healing process helps to alleviate symptoms of the lung disease.

The Lung Institutes stem cell treatments us adult or autologous stem cells as they are called taken from the patient. These cells are obtained either from bone marrow or a blood sample. Once that is done, the cells are harvested and separated to be reintroduced into the patient’s body through an IV injection. These cells will then begin the healing process of the damaged tissues.

Why this therapy works so well for patients with chronic lung disease is because as the stem cells are reintroduced to the patient’s blood stream, they flow through the heart’s right chamber and then directly into the lungs. Once in the lungs, they are trapped in a pulmonary chamber where they can begin their work of healing the areas affected by the lung disease. The treatment of these chronic diseases with Stem Cell Therapy brings hope to so many people who suffer from them now and in the future. Learn more about stem cell, visit
