COPD Stem Cell Treatment - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
What is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)?
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or commonly referred as COPD, is comprised typically of three related conditions:
- Chronic Bronchitis
- Chronic Asthma
In each condition there is chronic obstruction of the flow of air through the airways and out of the lungs, and the obstruction generally is permanent and may be progressive over time.
How can Stem Cells help treat Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)?
COPD Stem Cell Treatments and other treatments of various lung conditions, including COPD, has shown measurable results. Studies indicate that a particular type of stem cell, mesenchymal stem cells, have the ability to suppress many of the immune system assailants such as macrophages that attack emphysema-ridden lung tissue. Not surprisingly, many people with COPD who have been treated with fat tissue derived stem cells have reported experiencing reductions in shortness of breath and reliance on supplemental oxygen.
