Treating Lung Disease in Tampa

Tampa is home to many progressive medical companies. One such medical treatment facility, the Lung Institute, is leading the new field of adult cellular therapies for chronic lung disease.

Adult Cellular Treatment

Adult cells can be utilized in any organ in the body since cells are able to mimic any differentiated cell. Since they are capable of self-renewing, they can divide many times and can specialize to promote the healing of organs, such as lungs, while still sustaining the original cell.

The Lung Institute uses only adult, autologous cells to treat people with chronic lung diseases. This means the cells are extracted from a patient’s body and then returned into the same patient.

Cellular Therapy for Lung Disease

Lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitisemphysema, interstitial lung disease and pulmonary fibrosis can be treated with cells. The cells used at the Lung Institute are autologous and can be found in bone marrow and blood. Cells have the ability to self-renew and replicate, and are capable of forming any type of tissue or organ in the body.

Venous Cellular Treatment – Some patients may undergo a venous cellular therapy. This purely blood-derived treatment is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure.

Bone Marrow Treatment – Some patients may undergo the bone marrow treatment. This minimally invasive, outpatient treatment is a hybrid treatment, combining the venous treatment with a small bone marrow aspiration. The cells from both blood and bone marrow are used.

* Every patient is given a Patient Satisfaction Survey shortly after treatment. Responses to the 11-question survey are aggregated to determine patient satisfaction with the delivery of treatment.

^ Quality of Life Survey data measured the patient’s self-assessed quality of life and measurable quality of improvement at three months.
