To get you started, the Lung Institute has created some questions for you to add to your list of questions.

Whether you’re just beginning your research or you’ve been researching for a while, it can be challenging to know what questions to ask. From general questions to specific questions, the Lung Institute is happy to help you. Here are some general ideas to get you started:

  • What are stem cells, and how do they work?
  • How does stem cell therapy at your clinic work?
  • Are your doctors U.S. board certified physicians?
  • What safety protocols are in place to keep me safe?
  • Is there a doctor overseeing the stem cell treatment?
  • How quickly are my stem cells re-administered to me?
  • Does your clinic only do stem cell therapy for lung disease?
  • Does your clinic have a dedicated stem cell processing lab onsite?

What are some specific questions I could ask during my stem cell therapy consultation?

Stem Cell Therapy ConsultationBecause everyone is different, it’s important to ask questions specific to your needs. You want to ensure the highest quality of care before, during and after your stem cell therapy procedure. Here are some patient specific ideas to help you feel prepared for your stem cell therapy consultation:

  • Ask about booster treatment options for the future.
  • Ask about how long it could take before you see results.
  • Discuss any new questions or concerns you have with your clinic’s medical team.
  • If you would like more information about your specific chronic lung condition, feel free to ask.
  • Ask if you’ll need to have any preliminary tests, such as pulmonary function tests or blood tests, completed before your stem cell therapy procedure.
  • Discuss follow-up care options, such as pulmonary function tests, visiting your pulmonologist and staying in contact with your stem cell treatment clinic.
  • Write down and bring a list of all of your current medications, both over-the-counter, prescription and vitamins, so you can ask about any possible interactions.

What are the basics about stem cell therapy at the Lung Institute?

The Lung Institute only uses autologous stem cells or stem cells derived from the patient’s own body. The stem cells are extracted from blood or bone marrow tissue, separated and then returned to the patient intravenously. Once returned, the stem cells can begin to promote the healing of lung tissue.

    I have had IPF for about 5 years now. A product called Ambrotose from Mannatech Company has helped me more than anything else. It seems to be losing some of it effectiveness lately. I am also taking the Pulmonary Fibrosis package of enzymes with some success.

    Dear Larry,

    Thanks for your question, and we’re sorry to hear that your wife has been going through such a difficult time. We don’t know if the University of Cincinnati is or is not studying stem cell treatments, but you could contact them to ask. At the Lung Institute, however, we are using stem cells from the patient’s own body to promote the healing of lung tissue. Many of our patients feel better after treatment and have improved lung function. You can hear more of their stories here. We would be happy to speak with you one-on-one and answer your questions regarding stem cell treatment, so feel free to contact us today by calling (855) 313-1149. We look forward to speaking with you soon.

    Kind Regards,

    The Lung Institute

    We live 25 minutes north east of Cincinnati Ohio which of course has the great research center of the University-of-Cincinnati. We do not know if UC is studying stem-cell-transplant. Is this something that could be done at UC medical center?? My wife is in the hospital now for the third time this year fighting COPD. She desperately needs this help!! Best:
