Finding a Cellular Treatment Center
You have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, chronic bronchitis, interstitial lung disease or pulmonary fibrosis and you need to find a treatment option beyond supplemental oxygen. There are a lot of places that will tell you about this inhaler or that pill. Some people even look to a lung transplant as an extreme answer to their lung disease. However, alternative treatment options are available, like cellular therapy from the Lung Institute.
Cellular Treatments at The Lung Institute
Depending on the condition being treated, the forms of cells used by the Lung Institute are autologous, meaning they come from the patient’s own body, and can be found in bone marrow and/or the patient’s peripheral blood. Cells have the ability for self-renewal and replication, capable of forming any type of tissue or organ in the body.
Adult cells from one organ are capable of forming tissue for another organ, which is called plasticity. Cells derived from blood or bone marrow have the capacity to form many types of differentiated cells. It has been found that adult cells are capable of being transferred into any one single organ of the body.
Cellular treatment involves isolating adult cells from bone marrow and blood, which requires special laboratory techniques to collect them and expand their numbers in culture. These procedures should be performed in a clinical setting under the supervision of a trained professional.
