Over 32 million Americans suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (also known as COPD). COPD is a progressive lung disease, however regenerative medicine, such as stem cell therapy and exosomes are showing promise for COPD by allowing natural healing, encouraging tissue repair and reducing inflammation to the diseased lung tissue.

COPD Causes

COPD is most commonly the result of smoking or exposure to air pollution, fumes or inhaled irritants.  This disease progresses more quickly in smokers compared to non-smokers. It can be associated with chronic bronchitis, emphysema and asthma.

COPD Symptoms

People who suffer from COPD experience symptoms differently. For some, it might be part of everyday life, such as a constant cough, shortness of breathe, difficulty catching your breathe, however it’s a progressive disease, and symptoms will progressively get worse if you don’t start treatments. Some of the most common COPD symptoms include:

  • Wheezing
  • Persistent cough that produces a lot of mucus (sometimes called a “smoker’s cough”)
  • Tightness in the chest
  • Shortness of breath doing simple activities
  • Unexplained swelling in ankles or legs
  • Feeling like your heart is beating out of your chest
  • Easily susceptible to the flu or flu-like symptoms

The Treatment

Traditional treatments for COPD vary, depending on the severity of the disease, but they can include supplemental oxygen, pulmonary rehabilitation or medications. Advanced stages often require intubation and use of a ventilator.

At the Stem Cell Center of NJ, we offer non-surgical treatment using stem cell therapy with exosomes and other growth factors to regenerate healthy cells to restore healthy tissue and relieve symptoms of COPD. These therapies may be offered singularly or in combination. Some therapies are administered via intravenous (IV), and some are inhaled via a nebulizer. Contact us today to see if you are a candidate for treatment.

At Stem Cell Center of New Jersey, we offer regenerative therapies including stem cell, exosomes, and other sources of growth factors to regenerate healthy tissue. Contact us today to schedule a one on one consultation, or to join us at one of our informative lectures to learn more about the potential of stem cell therapy.
