Stem Cell Therapy for COPD

Adipose stem cell therapy is a new alternative treatment to help manage the symptoms of COPD. The stem cells harvested from a patient have the potential to replace countless cells of the body, lung tissue included. The undifferentiated cells heal the body by replacing ones plagued with disease, regenerating new cells, and suppressing the immune systems macrophage response which engulfs and digests the dying cells of the lungs.

Recent research in the advancement of adult stem cell therapy has shown that restoration of damaged cells through this treatment is possible. This breakthrough in regenerative medicine shines a light of hope on those battling this degenerative disease. Improvements have been seen in the following symptoms after treatment:

  • Reduction of dyspnea (difficult or labored breathing)
  • Increased energy
  • Increase in the ability to walk alone
  • Increase in the ability to perform daily tasks
  • Reduction of reliance on supplemental oxygen
  • Improvements in sleep patterns
  • Enhanced mood

COPD does not have to be debilitating. Adult stem cell therapy is a treatment designed to help the body’s natural repair kit work more effectively. Damage to the lungs from COPD cannot be fully reversed; however, this treatment can help manage your symptoms to reduce the effects of further damage.
