COPD Cell Therapy: Are you suffering from:
- A cough which wont go away
Often coughing up mucus
- Short of breathe, especially when performing a physical task
- Tightness of the chest
- Disrupted sleep pattern
- Continued decline in energy
In COPD, less air flows in and out of the airways because of one or more of the following:
- The airways and air sacs lose their elastic quality.
- The walls between many of the air sacs are destroyed.
- The walls of the airways become thick and inflamed.
- The airways make more mucus than usual, which can clog them.
COPD is a major cause of disability, and it's the third leading cause of death in the United States. Currently, millions of people are diagnosed with COPD. Many more people may have the disease and not even know it.
COPD develops slowly. Symptoms often worsen over time and can limit your ability to do routine activities. Severe COPD may prevent you from doing even basic activities like walking, cooking, or taking care of yourself.
The focus of COPD Cell Therapy is targeting two main areas:
1. The conducting airway tubes, including the trachea, bronchi, and bronchioles.
2. The gas exchange regions, or alveolar spaces.
COPD Cell Therapy: how it can help
In normal lungs, there are progenitor cells in an abundance throughout each region. These cells divide to replace old or damaged lung cells, which keeps the lung healthy. The progenitor cells include tracheal basal cells, bronchiolar secretory cells (known as club cells), and alveolar type 2 cells. Division of these progenitor cells is thought to be sufficient to renew the lung’s structure throughout normal adult life.
Stem cells are much rarer than progenitors, but they are found in both embryonic and adult lungs. Some stem cells contribute to initial lung development and others help repair and regenerate the lung throughout life.
Stem cells can migrate to the sites of injury attracted by specific chemicals released by the damaged tissue.
The cell, by homing to the damaged area will fuse with the damaged tissue by the process of engraftment and become the same tissue by displaying the property of plasticity.
Our COPD stem cell program can greatly benefit patients with a range of lung diseases.
