Thanks! I will.check.lt out
I realize that I have posted this information elsewhere in the Lung Health group, but it bears repeating for newcomers.
It can be a challenge to tell which stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine practices are effective and which institutions are offering evidence-based proven therapies. In fact, recently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a stern warning against unproven stem cell therapies. The FDA issued these two press statements: https://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm573427.htm and https://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm573431.htm.
Lung Regeneration is a focus area of study at Mayo Clinic. 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. Researchers have only recently moved from animal models and Mayo Clinic investigators are now attempting to recellularize human lungs. It is still very early days. You can read more here: https://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/focus-areas/lung-regeneration
To find legitimate information about stem cell therapy for lung conditions and available clinical trials, anyone can call Mayo Clinic's Regenerative Medicine free telephone consult service. When you call, they will tell you about the availability of approved stem cell therapy at Mayo Clinic and elsewhere, and for what conditions. They can also tell you about research studies that are actively recruiting participants. Furthermore, you can add your name to a database to be notified when additional studies and information become available. You can learn more about the Consult Service here http://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/patient-care/clinical-services/regenerative-medicine-consult-service.
Or call 1-844-276-2003 to speak with one of our experts.

Do let us know what you find out, @wba3721
Have you found any info on Stemcell treatment of COPD???
no I haven't
@joangma and @cchristoph :This is the latest that I have found: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6190524/ https://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org/discussion/new-mayo-clinic-gene-guide-dna-testing-application-provides-genetic-testing-insights-backed-by-mayo-clinic-expertise/ If you want to research things like this go to NIH (national institute of health) and research the latest findings. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/
So far this procedure is only in a few hospitals and it might not be covered by insurance.
