At this year’s Lung Science Conference in Estoril, Portugal, researchers revealed that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can be effective in treating chronic inflammatory lung diseases, such as COPD or cystic fibrosis, which currently have no cure. In pre-clinical trials, MSCs injected intravenously into mice with inflammatory lung diseases demonstrated an ability to repair the damaged lung tissue and alleviate inflammation by decreasing the number of neutrophils and monocytic cells, which are indicators of inflammation.

Scientists at the University of Cambridge and University of Manchester are using stem cells to create study environments that closely resemble human tissue which they call “mini lungs.” These lungs are not designed to be transplanted, but offer a valuable biological use in evaluating new treatments and therapies.
