Cellular therapy is a form of treatment within the field of regenerative medicine which aims to use the body’s natural healing mechanisms to treatment current diseases. In the practice of cellular therapy for lung disease, the body’s sources for cells (blood) are withdrawn from the patient, the cells are separated and removed and finally reintroduced into the body through the veins where they eventually settle within the lungs to reduce inflammation and promote healing. The benefit of cellular therapy as opposed to other traditional forms of treatment is that because cellular therapy uses the body’s own cells, there are virtually no risks of adverse effects.
