Cellular Therapy (PRP-PC) for Chronic Lung Disease

The Lung Institute uses regenerative cellular therapy to treat chronic lung disease, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Many of these conditions have no cure, but certain treatments and measures can help patients Breathe Easier. Cellular therapy has allowed many people with chronic pulmonary conditions to improve their quality of life.

How Cellular Therapy Works

=

Platelets

Platelets help the body heal, encourage clot formation and fight infections. They also include growth factors that can help create new blood vessels, decrease inflammation and regenerate tissue.

=

White blood cells

White blood cells emit “paracrine-signalling molecules,” which communicate with nearby cells and induce change without even coming into contact with them. This effect helps the PRP-PC decrease inflammation in environments it’s introduced to — in this case, the patient’s lungs. There are three types of white blood cells, or leukocytes, that help make cellular therapy effective.

^

Granulocytes, or neutrophils, which fight infection and inflammation.

^

Lymphocytes

  • T-lymphocytes help boost the immune system.
  • B-lymphocytes produce antibodies that fight harmful bacteria, viruses and foreign material in the body.
^

Monocytes recognize pathogens and become macrophages, which destroy these pathogens once they're identified.

=

Cytokines

These are small proteins that help the white blood cells signal and trigger changes in surrounding cells. In this way, they play a key role in decreasing inflammation.
