Stem Cell Therapy: A Revolution In Lung Diseases

Stem Cell Technique is a revolutionize treatment for many diseases. It has a couple of unique characteristics which make it appropriate for treatment or therapy for a rising number of medical conditions and diseases. Firstly, stem cells have the capability to multiple or reproduce more cells of the same type. Also, they can turn into specialized cells that would be suitable to perform a particular function, such as in the muscle, skin or bone.

Currently, despite apart from curing many health conditions like neurodegenerative ailments, heart diseases, and diabetes, with each passing year, more medical conditions and diseases are being known to be treated with the use of these stem cells. According to the PR Web, clinical trials are already in progress to treat stroke, blindness, and spinal cord injury by using stem cell. Even though there are people who are against this technique and they think of it as unethical, stem cell therapy is gaining popularity day by day.

For over six decades, transplant of bone marrow is the most common stem cell therapy being used in medical history, though that could be a painful, prolonged and expensive process. In contrast, deriving stem cells derived from the umbilical cord are less expensive and safer to use for treatment, and that’s where people found it unethical. The potential for tissue regeneration has led to treatments for injuries and diseases to the skin, bone, and surface of a human eye by implanting or grafting tissues.

The Lung Institute is a well-known and renowned medical research institutes that are helping people who are ill due to a different type of lungs diseases. They help their patient with an advanced therapy known as stem cell therapy that works the way that is mentioned above in this article.

This Cedars-Sinai based Institute aims to use stem cells to solve chronic disease problems related to lungs such as COPD, Chronic Bronchitis, Emphysema, Pulmonary fibrosis and interstitial lung disease. The Lung Institute presently provides a range of treatments to the patients who are suffering from lung diseases. The patient can choose the treatment according to his ethical values between bone marrow treatments and blood (venous) treatments.

Leaving Las Vegas

Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call—New Orleans

Nicolas Cage has proved many times that he can be “out there” when it comes to his film roles. But when you add a notorious German filmmaker by the name of Werner Herzog, it is only a matter of time before interesting things start to happen. In Bad Lieutenant, Cage portrays a police detective who has become both corrupt and manic after experiencing Hurricane Katrina. Cage, again, gives his all in his role. Although Cage seems to be over doing it in the film, his character actions are what one would expect given the situation. What else would you expect to see from a character who is to look very sweaty, pasty and emaciated?

Doug Levitt Offers a Unique and Refreshing Face to the Struggling

The unfortunate fact is that when a lot of people think about the struggling, they are often thinking about them in ways that make them less than human. The struggling American has a very bad stigma. Even other struggling Americans may look at each other with suspicion and even disregard. This is why it is important for someone to take the time to clear the air of all of the misconceptions. What is even more unfortunate is that some of the reasons that people look at one another with suspicion is that they have had a string of experiences where they have gotten screwed over.

 

Fortunately, there is someone who is there to clear up all of the misconceptions and take the time to encourage people to open up with one another and see each other as human. The name of the person who is an advocate for the struggling is Doug Levitt. The way he is shedding light on the struggles of America is by putting together a project that is both a music album and a novel. This project is called The Greyhound Diaries. One thing that could be said about this project is that it is very effective at shedding light on an issue that has been hitting America for the longest time.

 

Doug Levitt is the type of compassion this world needs. This world is full of media and conversations that play people against each other. This is one of the reasons that Doug Levitt has taken on the project. He wanted to inspire people to be more inclusive about who they talk to as opposed to having this mentality that some people are lesser than others. The Greyhound Diaries shows that even the struggling can be every bit as hard working as the more fortunate in this world.
