Emphysema and other lung diseases, like idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, are just a few of the medical conditions that are long-term and considered progressive diseases. Among other things, these diseases can shorten one's life span and can hinder the patient from various activities and experiences.
Patients who have lung diseases often complain of shortness of breath. Some may feel slightly suffocated and can not get in enough air.
Stem cell therapy have proven to help ease these difficulties in patients who have lung diseases. Stem cells that have been activated and returned back to the patient travel to the lungs, rejuvenating various parts of the respiratory system and help re-oxygenate tissues, allowing the patient to breathe in easier.
