Stem Cell Treatment for Asthma - Stem Cell Therapy in MexicoStem Cell Therapy in Mexico

Stem Cell Treatment for Asthma

At Renovation Advanced Therapy Center procedures are performed using some of the most scientifically advanced facilities in the world.

 

Most Asthma patients can be helped with Stem Cells from adipose tissue or/and Umbilical Cord Stem Cells. Typically this is an outpatient procedure however patients may stay for 2 or 3 nights in our facilities.

 

About Asthma

 

Asthma is a chronic disease involving the airways in the lungs. These airways, or bronchial tubes, allow air to come in and out of the lungs.

If you have asthma your airways are always inflamed. They become even more swollen and the muscles around the airways can tighten when something triggers your symptoms. This makes it difficult for air to move in and out of the lungs, causing symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness.

 

 Asthma  Symptoms

 

The most common symptom is wheezing. This is a scratchy or whistling sound when you breathe. Other symptoms may  include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness or pain
  • Chronic coughing
  • Trouble sleeping due to coughing or wheezing

 

Asthma symptoms also called asthma flare-ups or asthma attacks, are often caused by allergies and exposure to allergens such as pet dander, dust mites, pollen or mold. Non-allergic triggers include smoke, pollution or cold air or changes in weather.

Asthma symptoms may be worse during exercise when you have a cold or during times of high stress.

Children with asthma may show the same symptoms as adults with asthma: coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. In some children, a chronic cough may be the only symptom.

 

How Stem Cell Therapy Works

 

Stem cells are harvested from adipose tissue or/and Umbilical Cord Stem Cells,  which includes fresh cells, proteins, growth factors and other tools necessary to rebuild damaged organ or tissue. Although these substances exist naturally in an individual’s bone marrow/adipose tissue they are usually not released into a person’s bloodstream in sufficient quantities to repair damage throughout the body.

The basis of mesenchymal stem cell therapy lies in stimulation of the immune system. Even under severe bronchial asthma stem cell therapy contributes to the regeneration of lung tissue, which leads to a significant reduction in the incidence of attacks and their duration and stops asthma attacks. Stem cell therapy in patients with asthma increases resistance to colds and infectious diseases reducing the frequency of exacerbation. It reduces the allergic response of the organism to allergens including house dust, animal dander, pollen, and foods.

Stem Cells are progenitor cells in the body. When treating asthma, own stem cells will be taken from adipose tissue and then cultured in a laboratory. After reaching a certain number of these cells they will be administered intravenously to the patient. Stem cells have a unique property – they can differentiate into any other cell. They are important for initiation of changes in the appearance of lung tissue, and timely treatment will often lead to a cure.
