Cell based therapy for COPD

Friday, August 17th, 2012

[Article in Japanese] Kubo H. Source Department of Geriatrics and Gerontology, Tohoku University Hospital. Abstract To develop a new cell based therapy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), we need to understand 1) the role of tissue-specific and bone marrow-derived stem cells, 2) extracellular matrix, and 3) growth factors. Recently, bronchioalveolar stem cells were identified […]
