About Cellular Treatment

What are Cells?

Cells make up every organism on this planet; they are imperative to sustaining life. They have the ability to form any type of bodily tissue or organ since they are able to continually replicate and self-renew. What differentiates cells from other cells is that cells from one organ are able to create tissue for another organ; this is called plasticity. Thus cells can play a major role in regenerative medicine.

Why Use Cells?

Cells can be used in any organ in the body since cells are able to mimic any type of differentiated cells. Since they are capable of self-renewing indefinitely, they can divide many times and specialize to promote the healing of organs, such as lungs, while still sustaining the original cell. This can improve bodily function by creating new tissue and strengthening organs.

What Type of Cells Would Be Used?

While there are several types of cells used in the science, the Lung Institute only treats with autologous cells. This means the cells are directly coming from a patient’s own body and are later infused back into the same patient. This decreases the possibility of rejection and eliminates any possible controversy associated with cells.

The Lung Institute offers cellular therapy option: Blood-Derived Therapy. During these treatments, the adult cells go through a specific process to target the damaged tissue or organ.

How It Works

The cells are extracted from the patient’s body either through bone marrow or blood depending on the treatment type. The cells are isolated by a trained professional in a clinical setting. The adult cells are quickly returned to the patient intravenously, which allows patients to breathe in the adult cells. Now, the cells will begin to promote the healing of lung tissue. With their ability to continually replicate, the lungs grow stronger, and patients are able to breathe easier and live better.

* 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.

All claims made regarding the efficacy of Lung Institute's treatments as they pertain to pulmonary conditions are based solely on anecdotal support collected by Lung Institute. Individual conditions, treatment and outcomes may vary and are not necessarily indicative of future results. Testimonial participation is voluntary. Lung Institute does not pay for or script patient testimonials.

As required by Texas state law, the Lung Institute Dallas Clinic has received Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval from MaGil IRB, now Chesapeake IRB, which is fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Program (AAHRPP), for research protocols and procedures. The Lung Institute has implemented these IRB approved standards at all of its clinics nationwide. Approval indicates that we follow rigorous standards for ethics, quality, and protections for human research.

Each patient is different. Results may vary.
