A research team from the Stem Cell Engineering Center of the Translational Chinese Medicine has developed a method for repairing lungs afflicted with interstitial fibrosis utilizing autologous [the patient’s own] stem cells. The team recovered stem cells from the patient, cultured them in-vitro [outside the body] and then reintroduced them into the patient to repair the damaged lung tissue. The use of the patient’s own stem cells virtually eliminated the likelihood the patient would reject the treatment.
“We are now the first institute to have implemented its regeneration of the cells in the lungs and repaired their tissues," states Zuo Wei, a member and spokesperson for the research team. According to the research team, the early results of their clinical application of autologous stem cells appears to improve the patient outcome significantly over more traditional medical treatments.
As regenerative engineering progresses, we believe the best stem cells to use in emerging treatments will be the patient’s own [autologous stem cells] as this negates the need to find a suitable donor and eliminates the chances of rejection of the transplanted tissue.
