    This is a very serious posting area for the ruthless money mongers taking aim at desperate people trying to live and breath. There are a lot of clinical trials listed for lung stem cell clinics but you must be cautioned of the honesty and reality of the study. A study is just that a study, the study does not make promises or ask you for monies up front or additional monies for additional treatments and follow ups. These false clinics are very deceptive and are not only in the USA but from all over the globe. Just be care full when you respond and ask lots of questions and resource all the information you can gather before you commit to anything. Stem Cell treatment is no longer the 20 years away procedure as we have thought, but in real time it is a hot topic and could be a very life saver for hundreds of thousands of suffers current and to be diagonised globally. There are medical centers that have approached the FDA for approval to start stem cell studies, University of North Carolina being one. They are not accepting as they are not approved for any type of studies at the moment. They will announce when and if approved.

    Thank you for this article. I had a very close friend who, (even though she knew better, spent thousands of dollars for stem cell treatments at a facility in Florida. She got no better, but the stem cell clinic owner got much richer.

    I’ve told her story many times, and have been encouraged to read the COPD Foundation’s position paper as well as the ATS paper and now your admonition. Thank you!!
