Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cells Can Help Improve COPD

Mar 24, 2019Regenerative Medicine

Do you or someone you know suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, better known as COPD? The constant feeling of shortness of breath, chronic cough, chest tightness and wheezing. You have taken a variety of medications, such as steroids, in an attempt to treat your symptoms. The only problem, nothing you have tried seems to improve your condition. Sound familiar? What if there was a way for you to improve your COPD naturally without surgery or the use of drugs? Imagine actually having more good days where you actually enjoy life again and fewer bad ones. This can now be a reality for people in the Syracuse area currently suffering from this disease.

COPD is a respiratory disease that narrows airways making it hard for the people suffering with it to breathe. It can make you cough, wheeze and feel short of breath. For many patients with COPD simple tasks like walking short distances is troubling. They also find themselves more susceptible to illness or pneumonia. According to the CDC, COPD is the third leading cause of death by disease in the United States impacting the lives of more than 11 million people. For many sufferers, the goal is simple, to breathe easier and to get back to your regular activities.

How Regenerative Medicine And Stem Cells Can Help Improve The Symptoms Of COPD

When you think of regenerative medicine with stem cells, you probably make an immediate connection with joint pain and inflammation. The association with mesenchymal stem cell-based regenerative medicine and breathing-related ailments might not be apparent. However, those same regenerative qualities that trigger stem cells to reduce joint pain can also repair any part of the body affected by inflammation.

In recent years there has been a breakthrough in medicine. Research has shown that the anti-inflammatory effects of systematically administered mesenchymal stem cells may decrease inflammation in COPD patients. The result is improved lung function and quality of life. The very same mesenchymal stem cell-based therapy that our clinic uses to improve chronic joint pain. Our clinic can now help to change the lives of COPD sufferers by now offering an innovative, minimally invasive therapy right here in the Syracuse area.

A Significant Medical Breakthrough…

Umbilical cord-based Regenerative Medicine which includes the use of mesenchymal stem cells is the most significant medical breakthrough in natural medicine in years. The use of mesenchymal stem cells derived and donated from the umbilical cords of scheduled full term C-Section births from healthy mothers in combination with cytokines, growth factors, chemokines, scaffolding proteins and hyaluronic acids help to create a healing environment inside the body.

This therapy has been shown to improve the chronic symptoms of COPD. What makes this possible is the attraction of the stem cells and their other healing constituents to the areas where inflammation and damage is occurring in the lungs. Through their ability to differentiate into many different types of cells and regenerative properties, they stimulate the body’s natural self-healing process to produce a healing environment to help repair the damaged tissues and cells.

Additionally, when these cells and modulators are introduced into the body, they are considered safe and “Immune Privileged” which means they will not be rejected by your body. As a result, the environment created by Regenerative Medicine produces anti-inflammatory effects helping the patient to breathe better. Although there is no cure for COPD, this therapy promotes cellular repair that can prevent more damage from occurring and improve the quality of the patient’s life. In fact, a pilot report from the Lung Institute indicates that within three months of treatment 84% of patients with COPD had improvements in the quality of their life after receiving Regenerative Medicine Therapy.

Why Umbilical Cord Tissue-Based Regenerative Medicine

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information mesenchymal stem cells from the umbilical cord, especially found in the Wharton’s Jelly layer, are very durable and have large loading capacities making them ideal for use in regenerative medicine. There are no ethical issues that arise with this type of therapy. All tissue harvested for our regenerative medicine procedures is collected from donated placentas of live full-term scheduled cesarean births. What makes Wharton’s Jelly-derived Human Cell and Tissue Product the most effective product is the minimally manipulated processing by the laboratory and the young vibrant cells and tissue found in the Wharton’s Jelly Layer. These details create the best regenerative medicine products on the market.

However, what makes our regenerative medicine procedures achieve such positive outcomes for our patients is the knowledge of how to create the ideal healing environment in the body. By using mesenchymal stem cells in conjunction with a unique blend of cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and scaffolding proteins, we are able to create an environment that fosters the functional factors involved in the reconstruction, repair, cushioning and protection of human tissue. Because regenerative medicine cooperates with your body’s natural healing abilities, it is able to improve the symptoms of COPD without the side effects and use of dangerous prescription drugs or surgery.
