Regenerative Medicine for Lung Diseases
More than 10 million Americans suffer with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), an umbrella term for lung diseases that include emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Typical treatments include steroids, bronchodilators, and antibiotics, but they’re not particularly effective, as COPD is our fourth-leading cause of death. Although there is no known cure for these progressive lung diseases, emerging regenerative medicine therapies hold promise for improving symptoms and retarding lung damage.
Stem Cell Research and Lung Diseases
The Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center offers a regenerative medicine protocol for COPD and other lung diseases that harnesses the beneficial properties of adult stem cells. Several ounces of the patient’s fat is removed during a liposuction procedure performed by our board-certified surgeon. Stem cells, which are abundant in fat, are then separated out, concentrated, and redeployed into the patient. When infused into a vein, these cells travel through the bloodstream directly to the lungs. This entire procedure takes about three hours to complete.
At the Newport Beach Stem Cell Treatment Center, we are committed not only to quality care for our patients with lung diseases but also to stem 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 lung diseases respond to stem cell therapy, and each patient must be assessed individually to determine the potential for optimal results from this regenerative process.
