What's the latest on stem cell therapy?

I see a lot of people who believe that stem cell therapy for COPD is a viable option. All the professionals I talk to say the procedure is of no use and a waste of people's money. What's the latest word?

  1. Best I can tell the FDA is now involved with several of the stem cell clinics. Research!

    1. Hi HOPS and thanks for your question. It sounds like you've made the 'rounds' with the professionals who are available to you. While we cannot provide medical advice over the internet (for your own safety), I thought you might find it helpful to look over this article on COPD and stem cell therapy: https://copd.net/news/stem-cell-therapy/.
      All the best,

      1. Thanks for the solid reference material Pretty much concurs with all other information I have gathered that it looks somewhat promising but we still have more research ahead. The information on clinical trials was especially informative Thanks for your professionalism. This is my 1st posting glad to find such an honest research source. Hope I have not violated any rules HOPS

      2. HOPS - it's our pleasure. And don't be concerned, you are good with us - no 'violations' at all. We're happy to have you as part of our online community.
        Warm regards,
