Regenerative Medicine for Asthma
Asthma leaves some 26 million people in this country–including almost 10 percent of our children–wheezing and gasping for breath. And those numbers are skyrocketing: Over the last 25 years, asthma incidence has more than doubled. During an asthma attack, the lining of the airways becomes inflamed, the muscles around them constrict, and bronchial tubes get clogged with thick mucus. Conventional treatment involves avoidance of asthma triggers and treatments with corticosteroids and other preventive and “rescue” medications. But regenerative medicine is looking for new approaches to this increasing, potentially life-threatening condition.
Stem Cell Research and Asthma
At the Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center, we have a protocol for asthma that involves the patient’s own adult stem cells. Isolated from a small amount of fat–the richest source of stem cells–which is obtained during a liposuction procedure, these cells are concentrated and infused back back into the patient’s body via intravenous infusion. As the stem cells enter the bloodstream, they are delivered directly to the lungs. This regenerative medicine process is done on an outpatient basis in our fully accredited surgical center over the course of about three hours.
At the Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center, we are committed not only to quality care for our patients with asthma but also to ste, cell research and the advancement of regenerative medicine. We are proud to be part of the only Investigational Review Board (IRB)-based stem cell treatment network in the United States that utilizes fat-transfer surgical technology. We have an array of ongoing IRB-approved protocols, and we provide care for patients with a wide variety of disorders that may be treated with adult stem cell-based regenerative therapy. Not all asthma and other lung conditions respond to stem cell therapy, and each patient must be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimal results from this regenerative medicine process.
