24 Jul USA based Stem Cell treatment for lung disease in Florida
Collectively, such diseases of the airways as emphysema, bronchitis, asthma and cystic fibrosis are the second leading cause of death worldwide. More than 35 million Americans alone suffer from chronic respiratory disease. Weizmann Institute scientists have now proposed a new direction that could, in the future, lead to the development of a method for alleviating some of their suffering. The study’s findings, which appeared today in Nature Medicine, show how it might be possible to use embryonic stem cells to repair damaged lung tissue.
The research began with an insight: Certain stem cells that normally reside in the lungs are highly similar to those in the bone marrow. In each organ, the stem cells, rather than being distributed throughout the tissue, are concentrated in special compartments that contain all the provisions that stem cells need. Prof. Yair Reisner of the Weizmann Institute’s Immunology Department says: “That understanding suggested to us that we might be able to apply our knowledge of techniques for transplanting bone marrow stem cells to repairing lung tissue.”
Bone marrow transplant is based on two main principles: the ability of stem cells to navigate through the blood to the appropriate compartment and the prior clearing out of the compartment to make room for the transplanted stem cells. Reisner and his group thought it might possible to apply these principles to introducing new stem cells into the lungs. But before they could do this, they needed to find a source of lung stem cells suitable for transplanting — a problem, as they are quite rare. At Advanced Rejuvenation we have found stem cells from adipose tissue and or bone marrow along with PRP we have found a high success with treating these lung conditions.
