Conferences in Europe have proven fertile ground for those with an interest in stem cell therapies in their many forms over recent years with research and discussions being presented in both Italy and Portugal by those at the height of their powers in this area of medical research. Among the successful research that was shown at a recent conference in Portugal was that explaining how lung inflammation and tissue damage was assisted through stem cell therapies in mice, COPD News Today reports; this research is thought to be the latest step in beginning the process of treating lung based conditions such as COPD with stem cell therapies.
The research based on the effects of stem cell therapies on mice was presented by researchers from Queens University, Belfast. An earlier conference also took place in Europe, this time in Italy where Dr. Jack Coleman gave a talk on the benefits of stem cell therapies. Based at the Baylor College of Medicine, The Lung Institute’s Dr. Coleman discussed the issues surrounding how new technologies can be limited in their effects by an outdated research and testing set of procedures and regulations. Dr. Coleman believes the current regulations in the U.S. are limiting the introduction of new technologies like stem cell therapies he hopes will prompt a change in the way new medicines are introduced, according to PRWeb.
Based in Houston, Texas, The Lung Institute is one of the latest additions to the work of The Baylor College of Medicine; The Lung Institute (lunginstitute.com) was only established in 2014 with the aim of finding new ways of treating and researching lung based medical conditions, such as COPD. The success already achieved by The Lung Institute has seen over 3,000 patients already pass through the doors of the medical center in just over two years, according to The Lung Institute.
The Lung Institute has not only focused its efforts on this directly affected by any lung based medical conditions, but also provides a growing number of services dedicated to caring for family and friends of those often in dire health situations. Chaplaincy services and social workers are always on hand to develop new ways of assisting each and every member of a family touched by lung based medical issues.
