What is a Stem Cell?
Stem cells are known as the building blocks of life, due to their ability to self-renew and replicate, in order to form any type of tissue in the human body. Adult stem cells exhibit a quality known as plasticity, which is the ability for stem cells from one to create tissue for another organ. This quality is the key regenerative aspect of stem cells.

The Stem Cell Treatment Process
There treatments are conducted using autologous stem cells, which are cells derived from the patient's own body. Adult stem cells can form many types of cells, so upon being returned to the patient, they target damaged lung tissue, and potentially lead to more improved lung function.
