The Lung Institute specializes in treating patients who suffer with lung cancer. Their mission is twofold. First and foremost, they endeavor to save as many lives as possible with the latest medical practices available today. Secondly, they make it their business to lead the way in the research and development of cutting edge techniques to combat lung cancer. The institution treats COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), interstitial lung disease, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis and chronic bronchitis. They achieve this innovative goal through the use of multi-faceted Stem Cells. In particular, they work with autologous stem cells, which are produced within a patient’s very own body. These cells come from either blood or bone marrow.
The process of using stem cells is somewhat as simple as one, two and three. Step one is to harvest the cells. It may surprise many patients and followers of the practice that only a small sample is needed to begin the healing process. Once the harvest process is complete, medical professional proceed to extract the stem cells they require from any others in the sample. The final step is to return the desired cells to the body intravenously. This is where the naturally miraculous healing process within the body begins for lung treatment patients. It all starts with the heart and ends in the lungs.
By the basic structure and nature of veins, arteries and the heart, when chemicals or cells are introduced to the body intravenously (injected with a needle) they travel straight to the heart. After that, the lungs are the next stop. The lungs and heart working in unison is known as the cardiovascular system. Most substances and cells pass through this system and make it throughout the rest of the body. When stem cells are a part of this process they do not make it past the lungs. This is a blessing for anyone seeking to cure a lung ailment. It also makes some of the lifesaving that the Lung Institute performs just that much easier to accomplish.
Unfortunately, the labor of love and technique this organization practices is a somewhat of a sensitive issue when it comes to international governance and medicine. For the moment, there are ideologies standing in the way of this kind of curing, research and development. However, the institute is not without its own allies and methods of getting results in the field. According to the PR Web, one such instance is the presenting of accurate and sound science at the International Congress on Responsible Stem Cell Research. Fighting diseases is more just treating patients in a medical facility. It also includes making sure they have the right to access these treatments as well.
