Stem cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica, under the direction of Dr. Mesén, is a pioneer in the use of Stem Cells Therapies in Costa Rica. At Stem Cells Transplant we use adult autologous stem cells for the treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Stem cell transplantation is a promising method for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and mesenchymal stem cells have clinical potential for lung repair and regeneration.

Recent studies demonstrate that mesenchymal stem cells have the capacity to modulate immune responses in acute lung injury and pulmonary fibrosis in human patients. Stem cells from different sources, such as those found in bone marrow or adipose tissue, could act preventing the emphysematous lesion progression.

Cell therapy was shown to reduce oxidative damage during smoking, which may collectively hold promise in attenuation of the severity of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Using stem cell therapies offered at Stem Cells Transplant Institute, you can improve symptoms and signs of COPD as:

  • Shortness of breath (especially during physical activities)
  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightness
  • Excess mucus in your lungs
  • Chronic cough
  • Frequent respiratory infections
  • Lack of energy
  • Swelling in ankles, feet or legs

There is much to be learned from the basic and clinical science of mesenchymal stem cells in order to reap the full potential of these multifaceted progenitor cells in the treatment of of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but so far results are very positive and promising.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a worldwide epidemic disease and a major cause of death and disability, it can be briefly described as airflow limitation and chronic dyspnea (difficult or labored breathing), associated to an inflammatory response of the respiratory tract to noxious particles and gases, mostly in tobacco. Its main feature is the obstruction of airflow and consequent chronic dyspnea.

Despite recent advances, and the development of new therapeutic, medical and clinical approaches, a curative therapy is yet to be achieved and conventional therapies are only used to improve symptoms but not really change de disease progression.

Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa has state-to-the-art technologies and human resource to help you get fascinating treatment possibilities for COPD through the use of stem cells. Costa Rica ranks as one of the best healthcare systems in the World, we offer high quality stem cells treatments for just a fraction of the price you get in the USA. Don´t hesitate to contact us.
