Lung Institute White Paper Reveals Evidence of Pulmonary Function Improvement from Stem Cell Therapy
Date:1/21/2016

Lung Institute doctor Jack Coleman, Jr., M.D. recently released a white paper showing evidence that stem cell therapy for lung diseases improves most patients’ quality of life scores and, in some cases, pulmonary function. The paper outlines a study that was conducted following 100 patients who received autologous stem cell therapy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

“Although research on the use of autologous stem cells is still in its early stages, it has shown substantive progress in treating patients with few, if any, adverse effects,” Dr. Coleman stated. “COPD is currently the third leading cause of death in the United States, and we’re giving our patients an alternative option that doesn’t just mask the symptoms.”

Coleman’s white paper summarizes the results of a study where approximately 100 patients with lung diseases were treated using stem cell therapy. Three months after treatment, 84 percent of patients reported an improved quality of life. The average improvement was 35 percent. Additionally, 25 of the patients in this study group were tested for pulmonary function. 48 percent of those 25 patients saw an increase in pulmonary function of over 10 percent, with the average rate of improvement at 16 percent. This sampling of patients represents one of the largest study groups tested in regard to how stem cells affect those with lung diseases.

Lung diseases are degenerative, meaning pulmonary function is expected to decline, making an increase in pulmonary function even more noteworthy. Advancements such as this are why the Vatican hosts an annual conference on regenerative medicine and why the White House recently passed a bill approving stem cell research funding.

Supporters like the White House and Vatican are helping increase awareness as to all of the benefits of regenerative cellular therapy. In an article published on ChristianNewsWire, U.S. Rep. Chris Smith recently stated, “It remains one of the best kept secrets in America that umbilical cord blood stem cells and adult stem cells in general are curing people of a myriad of terrible conditions and diseases in adults as well as children.”
