Cellular Therapy in Florida

What are Cells?

Cells are responsible for acting as the foundation for every living being. They are capable of forming any tissue or organ in the body in conjunction with their ability to continuously replicate and self-renew. What differentiates cells from other types of cells is their plasticity—their ability to create tissue for an organ different than their originating organ, thus the benefit of cells in regenerative medicine.

Why Cells?

Cellular therapy at the Lung Institute is used to improve the function of the lungs after damage has occurred from chronic lung disease, but cells are versatile and are capable of forming any differentiated cell, so they can actually develop into any organ or tissue in the body. Since cells self-renew repetitively, they divide indefinitely, which means they are ideal to promote the healing of organs, such as lungs. This can significantly improve organ function by creating new tissue and undermining the effects of organ damage.

What Cells Are Used?

The Lung Institute, available in Florida and Tennessee, offers treatments that utilize autologous cells. Since the cells are coming from an adult patient’s body, they will only be administered to the same patient. This decreases the potential of rejection and undermines any possible controversy about cells.

The Lung Institute provides cellular therapy: Blood-Derived Therapy. During cellular therapy, the cells go through a specific process in order to target the damaged tissue or organ.

How Does It Work?

The cells are extracted from the patient’s body through blood . The cells are isolated by a clinical professional. Almost immediately, the cells are returned to the individual intravenously, which allows patients to breathe in the cells. Finally, the cells begin to promote the healing of lung tissue. With their ability to continually replicate, the lungs grow stronger, and patients are able to breathe easier and live better.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months of COPD patients.

All claims made regarding the efficacy of Lung Institute's treatments as they pertain to pulmonary conditions are based solely on anecdotal support collected by Lung Institute. Individual conditions, treatment and outcomes may vary and are not necessarily indicative of future results. Testimonial participation is voluntary. Lung Institute does not pay for or script patient testimonials.

As required by Texas state law, the Lung Institute Dallas Clinic has received Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval from MaGil IRB, now Chesapeake IRB, which is fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Program (AAHRPP), for research protocols and procedures. The Lung Institute has implemented these IRB approved standards at all of its clinics nationwide. Approval indicates that we follow rigorous standards for ethics, quality, and protections for human research.
