COPD and stem cell treatment | Mayo Clinic Connect

Posted by admin
Mar 07 2019

I have been trying to find some actual people who have tried any of the Stem Cell treatments being offered. Especially interested in the Cellular Therapy being offered at many clinics in the USA. Not knowing who or what to believe is very difficult. I have also heard that Aloe Vera is an effective treatment that can help immensely I don't know how much of this is true either. I am on oxygen therapy 24/7 and my nose runs so much that I am desperate. I have tried Saline Solution, Sesame seed oil, Aloe Vera from the plant inside my nose. I have a humidity container on my oxygen consentrator and also a humidifier in my bedroom. I have been trying to take off the oxygen for an hour or so every few hours but my oxygen gets low and I go into A-fib. Nothing has worked to stop my runny nose. It truly makes me want to just give up. I am also in remission for stage 3B lung cancer since August 2018.

Hi @justapril, I moved your message to this existing discussion about COPD and stem cell therapy in the Lung Health group. I recommend reading through the past messages in this discussion as well as these:

Stem Cells / Regeneration https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stem-cells-regeneration/

Regenerative medicine for COPD is still in the research phase. Do use caution about promises made by some clinics.

To help people learn more about the proven therapies and the promise of developing therapies, Mayo Clinic offers a free telephone consult service. When you call the consult service, they will tell you about the availability of approved stem cell therapy at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere, and for what conditions. You can learn more about the Consult Service here http://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/patient-care/clinical-services/regenerative-medicine-consult-service. Or call 1-844-276-2003 to speak with one of our experts.
