Is stem cell treatment an option for COPD?
My talk with the clinic a year or so ago gave me that impression. I wonder if Mayo has new information.

I have been traveling back and forth from Oregon to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville for a lung transplant evaluation, spent 3 weeks there 2 weeks ago and am returning tomorrow for another week of tests. With all the tests and consultations with the pulmonary lung transplant team of 20 the only mention of stem cells for COPD was that it is being researched and is some time off in the future. Current wait list for lungs is 6 months to 18 months. I suspect that I'll have a better chance with a TX over stem cells.
Those that are advertising on TV are one group that has clinics around the country, several States Attorneys have filed suit against them and several people have past away after doing there treatments and spending over $10,000.00 for something that does not work. It is a scam.
