Treating Lung Disease with Stem Cells
The Lung Institute state-of-the-art clinics harvest stem cells, the body’s natural healing system, from a patient’s own blood, fat or bone marrow and reintroduce them into the body, directing their healing ability toward lung tissue. This high dose of stem cells promote healing and helps patients breathe more easily.
The Lung Institute uses autologous stem cells, derived from the patient’s own body for the bone marrow and the venous (blood-derived) stem cell procedures. Stem cells are extracted, isolated and immediately introduced back into the body where they replicate into healthy cells specialized to promote healing. All our stem cell procedures have shown anti-inflammatory properties beneficial to patients with lung disease.
The city of Pittsburgh leads lung disease research with programs like those at the Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease at the University of Pittsburgh. The Pittsburgh Lung Institute clinic treats interstitial lung disease and other serious lung disorders including COPD, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis and black lung.
What is a Stem Cell?
Stem cells are the building blocks of life; they are essential to every living organism. They are able to self-renew and replicate—with the ability to form every type of tissue or organ in the body. Adult stem cells from one organ are able to create tissue for another organ; this is called plasticity. This is key to their function in regenerative medicine.
How Does the Lung Institute use Stem Cells?
The Lung Institute offers stem cell treatments for many of the major pulmonary conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis and interstitial lung disease. The stem cells used by the Lung Institute are autologous, which means they come from the patient’s own body. The stem cells are extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow or blood (venous) depending on the patient’s current condition and health history. Adult stem cells have the capacity to form many types of differentiated cells, so when the stem cells are returned to the patient, they will target the damaged tissue, which leads to improved lung function in patients with a chronic lung disease. Our minimally invasive, outpatient stem cell procedures are changing lives by helping patients breathe easier.
Why Choose the Lung Institute?
At the Lung Institute, we recognize the challenges of finding effective and sustainable treatment options for patients who might be suffering from debilitating lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis, or interstitial lung disease. By harnessing the body’s innate healing capacity, we have developed revolutionary, minimally invasive stem cell therapies to help treat lung disease. Our goal is to help patients breathe easier, improve their quality of life and provide hope.
