How The Lung Institute Can Help Treat Lung Disorders With Stem Cells

The key to treating lung damage is to find a way to reverse the effects that conditions such as COPD, lung cancer, asthma, and other respiratory diseases and disorders have on the lungs. Stem cell-based treatments for lung disorders are opening new doors for treatment options and are helping to restore quality of life here at The Lung Institute.

Stem cells are a very unique type of cell that is found naturally in the body. What sets them apart from other cells is not only can they multiply and make more of themselves like other cells can, but stem cells can also differentiate and turn into other types of cells. Basic stem cells can become other cells types including muscle, tissues, skin, blood, nerve, and bone cells. Stem cells are one of the many research division The Lung Institute is focused on and is proving to be an amazing new field of science. Stem cells used in medical treatments and therapies are generally classified into one of three main categories:

Embryonic stem cells- These cells are very controversial says the Baylor College of Medicine and not used at The Lung Institute because these stem cells taken from developing human embryos.

Umbilical cords cells- Stem cells can be found in the umbilical cord and can be collected at birth, but these stem cells are unattainable any other time than at birth.

Adult stem cells-These are stem cells used in medical treatments most commonly and can be harvested from the patient’s body in spinal fluid, fatty tissues, bone marrow, and more.
