TAMPA, Fla. - Oct. 31, 2013 - PRLog -- Tampa, Fla. (October 30, 2013) – Regenerative medicine is the latest medical technology for the restoration and repair of damaged lung tissue caused by lung disease. Lung Institute’s physicians have harnessed this advancement in modern medicine to bring patients suffering with conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and pulmonary fibrosis an innovative treatment choice that betters their quality of life and helps them to breathe easier.

Often, many of these patients have been told that lung transplantation is their only option, and as a result many are turning to advanced treatments such as pulmonary stem cell therapies to enhance lung function and regenerate healthy lung tissue. Read the excerpt from the Lung Institute blog below to learn more.

How do stem cells restore damaged lung tissue?

Lung Institute utilizes autologous stem cells, meaning those derived from the patient’s own blood or fat tissue, for treatment. These somatic, or adult, stem cells have the unique ability to self-renew and replicate, and are capable of forming any type of tissue found in the human body, including lung tissue.

Both stem cell therapies and lung transplantation have been proven, in many cases, to improve sufferer’s quality of life. However, lung transplantation is an invasive inpatient surgery that has far riskier complications and a longer recovery time.
