New developments in regenerative medicine are bringing about exciting, novel approaches to create therapies for hard to treat diseases. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a hard to treat disorder that progressively blocks airflow in the lungs making it increasingly difficult for an individual to breathe, and is one of the leading illnesses in the US. Yet, current treatments for COPD can only try to limit the extent of damage to the lungs, and to bring some relief from symptoms.
Novel treatments for COPD are urgently needed, and new applications with the use of adult stem cells may
Stem Cell Research for Multiple Sclerosis
Today is a lucky day for us as we get an up close and personal look at Dr. Roberto Fernandez Vina, the chairman of the Repair Stem Cell Institute’s Science Advisory Board, and one of the world’s most renowned stem cell research pioneers using the patient’s own Adult Stem Cells. […]
New Technology to Increase Efficacy of Adult Stem Cells in COPD Treatment
Entest BioMedical announced today it has filed a second patent application in the area of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). This new patent application builds upon the Company’s previously filed COPD patent application and involves the use of photoceutical devices to target stem cells toward areas impacted by COPD in the lungs.
Steve Josephs, PhD, a Scientific Advisor to the Company stated “that by using photoceutical devices in treating COPD, it is believed stem cells can be focused on areas of the lungs where there is damage. Furthermore, being
