About Cellular Therapy at the Lung Institute
The Lung Institute utilizes autologous cells, derived from the patient’s own body. Cells are extracted, isolated and immediately reintroduced into the body where they divide and replicate into healthy cells, specialized to the damaged tissue. The use of autologous cells in transplantation is considered more reliable than cells from another individual as there is no chance of rejection. Cells have shown anti-inflammatory properties beneficial to patients with lung disease. Cells have the ability to self-renew indefinitely, meaning they can divide many times and specialize to promote healing.
