Lung Health

Each and every day, our lungs are directly exposed to external factors in the environment around us. The immune system is constantly working to maintain homeostasis and healthy body function, all while maintaining lung integrity and optimize lung function. Exposure to harmful environmental factors and genetics cause conditions like asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), and occupational respiratory diseases, which affect millions of people around the world with minimal solutions presently available[1]. Immune dysregulation and inflammation are also key components of both infectious and noninfectious pulmonary diseases[3]. Indeed, the immune system plays the most critical role in maintaining lung health.

What problem do patients face?

The cause of various respiratory diseases is commonly either genetic or environmental. While the immune system works around the clock to protect the lungs, prolonged exposure to harmful factors in the environment often lead to deterioration or dysfunction of the lungs. Patients with respiratory diseases feel the effects in everything they do, from exercise and workday tasks to even simply getting out of bed. Symptoms of these diseases are crippling and make everyday life nearly impossible. Presently, the standard of care for many diseases of the lungs does not solve the actual cause. The current standard of care includes treatments like oxygen therapy, steroids, bronchodilators, and pulmonary rehabilitation, which provide minor temporary relief but do not slow or halt the progression of the disease itself, allowing for proliferation and rapid decline in quality of life. 

What is the solution?

Mesenchymal Stem Cells offer an alternative therapy due to their unique ability to regulate the immune system and increase blood flow. While MSCs are able to transform into several cell types according to specific stimuli[4,5], studies suggest that these cells can help modulate the immune system and re-balance inflammation. MSCs can improve the microenvironment, which can help regenerate lung tissue[6,7]

When our MSCs are administered intravenously, they reach the lungs immediately. In lungs affected with chronic disease, MSCs appear to promote tissue regeneration, reduction of lung edema, improvement of energy metabolism, protection against microorganisms, and reduction of proinflammatory activity[6,8,10,11,12,13,14]. MSCs may also regenerate damaged tissue and cells, and in both acute and chronic inflammatory lung disease these cells may restore and improve pulmonary function. The remarkable potential of our MSC therapeutics significantly improves physical indicators and overall quality of life. 

In addition to these benefits, patients treated with our precision MSC therapy experience: 

  • Noticeable improvement in their primary complaint
  • Significantly improved lung capacity 
  • Decreased fatigue and reduced breathing difficulties
  • Increased stamina and endurance
  • Less frequent and less severe infections 
  • Increased blood flow
  • Quicker healing and recovery
