Now, lung transplantation is a lifesaving option for thousands of people every year, but it’s not perfect, Dr. Keller says.

Lung Regeneration in the Center for Regenerative Medicine

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Regenerative medicine has the potential to provide innovative new therapies for people with lung diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, pulmonary arterial hypertension and bronchiolitis obliterans. In their end stages, these diseases are today treated with medications or lung transplants, though there is an ongoing shortage of donor lungs that are acceptable for transplantation. Research into […]
