Treatment Options for Lung Disease?

Depending upon what type of lung disease that you suffer from, treatment options may vary. Many physicians prescribe bronchodilators to help expand the airways, allowing more airflow to and from the lungs.

Although most of these treatments are helpful, they may not assist in the reversal of some symptoms, they are simply used to deter the progression of the lung disease. A group of innovative physicians have discovered over the past decade that the use of stem cells can have a positive effect in treating some lung diseases.

Stem Cell Treatment for Your Lung Disease

In the case of lung disease, autologous stem cells are used, meaning they come from the patient’s own body, and can be found in bone marrow and/or in the patient’s venous blood. Stem cells derived from bone marrow or blood have the capacity to form many types of differentiated cells. During the procedure, stem cell treatment involves isolating adult stem cells from bone marrow and blood, which requires special laboratory techniques to collect them.

After being extracted from the patient’s body, they are then isolated. Then they are given back to the patient intravenously. The treatment is minimally invasive and typically an outpatient procedure. The procedure should be performed in a clinical setting under the supervision of a professional. It takes a physician that has sought specific training to perform stem cell therapy adequately and safely.
