Doctors use stem cell therapy to treat lung disease

Doctors at the Lung Institute in Tampa are using a lung patient’s own stem cells to help treat COPD, emphysema and pulmonary fibrosis by repairing damaged tissue.

The innovative stem cell therapy won’t be rejected because the doctors use the patients’ own cells in an FDA-approved process with growth factors. In some cases, patients are able to get rid of their oxygen tanks altogether.

The team at Moorfields Eye Hospital and University College London say human trials are now, for the first time, a realistic prospect.

Experts described it as a “significant breakthrough” and “huge leap” forward.
