Stem Cell Effect on Chronic obstructive pulmonary Disease
One of the diseases that stem cell treatment potential has been identified is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease refers to a disease in which the airways and lungs become chronically inflamed due to long exposure to risk factors such as cigarette smoke, soot, fine dust, bacteria and viruses. Symptoms include chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and bronchial asthma. Similar to asthma, the patient dies from deteriorating lung function due to respiratory problems such as difficulty breathing, coughing, and phlegm. Stem cell clinical studies have been conducted or are being conducted worldwide in thousands of patients to develop COPD therapies.
