Stem Cells are a controversial topic in the world today. Stem cells have an amazing ability to help many people with rare or deadly diseases.

The Lung Institute is a company working to help people with these diseases. First, you need to know what stem cells are. Stem cells are the building blocks of life–essential to every organism. Adult stems cells can be taken from one part of the body and put into another part, because they can transform into any cell they are put with.

The Lung institute has a certain way they can use these cells to help the patient, First, the lung institute takes either a blood or bone marrow sample from the donor. Then, the stem cells are separated from the rest of the blood. Finally, once separated the stem cells are returned to the body to start healing.

Once the stem cells are in the bloodstream they pass through the heart. After the heart the cells continue on to the lungs where they are caught by the pulmonary trap. Because they are caught at the trap, they begin to promote healing in the lungs.

They are several diseases the company can cure through this treatment. The stem cells help cure COPD, Chronic Bronchitis, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Emphysema, Pneumoconiosis, Interstitial Lung Disease, and Bronchiectasis. All these diseases make the patient’s life very difficult, because they restrict the patient’s ability to breathe normally. They have had a success rate in over three-thousand patients of over seventy percent in improving the patient’s quality of life.

In conclusion, The Lung Institute is helping many people with their stem cell therapy. The people they are helping normally couldn’t have gotten help years ago. According to Hawaii News Now, this is improving their quality of life and allows them to do things that they couldn’t have without the treatment.
