Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the medical term for lung diseases like:
- Refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and
- Chronic bronchitis
This chronic inflammatory lung disease causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. COPD is characterized by increasing breathlessness in the patient and was considered to be an incurable disease until the introduction of stem cell therapy for this ailment. Common symptoms include cough, mucus (sputum) production, breathing difficulty and wheezing. People exposed to irritating gases or the ones who smoke cigarettes are more likely to get affected by COPD. People suffering from COPD are at a greater risk of developing lung cancer, heart disease, and many other conditions.
With the right diagnosis, stem cell therapy manages COPD and helps the patient to breathe better. Stem cell therapy can prevent more damage to the patients and they live for many years with COPD and enjoy life. It is a proven successful strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue to treat COPD.
The Czech Republic has become a popular medical tourism destination in recent times owing to its stem cell treatment centers. The country has a long history and is known for its ornate castles and native beers that attract tourists around the world.
Stem Cell Treatment for COPD:
Stem cells have been proven to be effective in treating several diseases. Research works and studies show that stem cell treatments can be invaluable in the treatment of several degenerative conditions.
As per new studies on stem cell therapy, it has been proven to be effective in reducing lung inflammation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis. It effectively manages Emphysema caused to the patients due to COPD along with restoring damages caused to the lungs. It repairs the alveoli (tiny air sacs of the lungs) and prevents them from growing too large. Stem cell therapy also regenerates the broken tissue that causes severe shortness of breath.
Stem cells create new alveolar cells to treat COPD. Exogenous mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) repair the structure of the injured respiratory system in COPD and improve its function.
Factors Affecting COPD Stem Cell Package Price
In many cases, the same clinic charges different amounts to the patients due to the relative factors like:
- Patient's age
- Patient's health condition
- Clinic's location
- Stem cell extraction procedure
- Doctor's experience
- Medical center's facilities
