Chronic lung disease is one of the leading causes of death in America and throughout the world. Lung diseases such as Asthma, COPD, and Pulmonary Fibrosis is on the rise while treatment for the more difficult lung diseases such as COPD has been rather elusive for the medical community. Because of this, there has been a diligent effort in the medical research community to attempt to find a treatment to revitalize the lungs and abate symptoms of sufferers of chronic lung diseases such as COPD.
Fortunately as BCM.edu reveals, because of a concerted research effort there has been some groundbreaking advances in the medical treatment of certain lung diseases in the last five years, such is the case with the treatment of COPD. While COPD is often caused by chronic smoking, the truth is that upwards of twenty percent of the people who are diagnosed with COPD have never been smokers. While for many years the treatment options for sufferers of COPD were nominal, the good news from Supplement Police is that with the advancement of stem cell research, medical science has discovered that stem cell treatment for COPD through the use of stem cells from the bone marrow or blood of patients infused into the lungs can prove effective.
Starting in 2013, the Lung Institute was founded and opened for patients who were suffering from chronic lung diseases such as COPD who were looking for alternative treatments to their debilitating disease and difficult prognosis. Since this time, the Lung Institute has treated over 3,000 patients with COPD with stem cell treatments with a positive effect experienced by over 84% of recipients. Because of the positive response and success of the treatment, the Lung Institute has since opened four other locations throughout North America. Clinics are now open in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Scottsdale, Arizona, Nashville, Tennessee and Dallas, Texas. While not all stem cell research has proven effective in all areas of medical research, the results of the use of stem cell for the treatment of COPD has proven to be promising for many patients who have been living a diminished lifestyle because of the damage to their lungs.
