Alternative Therapy for Pulmonary Fibrosis
The Lung Institute offers patients with pulmonary fibrosis an alternative option for therapy in the form of cellular therapy. We are proud to be the only cellular therapy clinic in the world that focuses solely on treating chronic lung disease, and as such can offer an unparalleled level of understanding and experience in the treatment of pulmonary conditions utilizing cells.
The Lung Institute offers cellular therapy to treat pulmonary fibrosis:
- Blood-Derived Therapy — During this procedure, blood is drawn from the patient and then harvested, processed and reintroduced intravenously into the patient’s body.
Because our alternative therapy uses autologous cells, or cells derived from the patient’s own body, this treatment option has virtually no risk of complications or rejection. The procedure is minimally invasive and performed on an outpatient basis over the course of two days. While there is currently no cure for pulmonary fibrosis, our cellular therapy has shown to potentially slow the progression of lung disease, minimize inflammation in the lungs and improve a person’s quality of life. In fact, more than 80 percent of people who have undergone treatment at the Lung Institute have reported an improvement in their quality of life following the procedure.
