Adult Stem Cells for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD) is a debilitating lung condition that leaves patients unable to breathe or enjoy life. It is also known as emphysema, chronic bronchitis and chronic obstructive asthma. COPD is rated as the third leading killer in the United States, killing approximately 120,000 individuals a year. Persons suffering from COPD also experience chronic disability and often a low quality of life. Sufferers also require a large amount of medical care with its expense and the need to stay near medical facilities and personnel. COPD is a very limiting and deadly disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the current medical treatment options for COPD?

COPD is a chronic condition and therefore typically requires long term medications. The commonly used treatment options are:

  1. Inhaled medications:
    1. Short acting bronco dilating inhalers which include:
    2. Long acting bronco dilating inhalers which include:
    3. Inhaled steroids (glucocorticoids) like fluticasone. Most experts recommend that inhaled steroids only be used with bronco dilators.
    4. Combinations of the above inhalers
  2. Oral medications such as theophylline and roflumilast
  3. Glucocorticoids (steroids) orally, intramuscularly and/or intravenously.
  4. Pulmonary rehabilitation – exercise, physical therapy and occupational therapy
  5. Smoking cessation
  6. Oxygen therapy
  7. Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation
  8. Hospitalization is frequently required for exacerbations (worsenings)
  9. Lung reduction or transplant surgery

With the exception of surgery, these treatment options are all considered supportive. They help the symptoms but do not change the underlying disease. A simplified diagram of these treatments is:

A COPD patient may be prescribed one, several or all of these at one time or another during the course of their illness. Some patients suffer without using any treatments. The effectiveness of treatment varies greatly both between patients and over the course of the illness. Many patients with COPD do very well for many years with exercise with or without medications.
