Autologous Lung Stem Cell Transplantation in Patients With Interstitial Lung Diseases

2016-06-13 16:53:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Interstitial lung diseases (ILD) are a group of diseases affecting the lung interstitium. The lung scarring that occurs in ILD is often irreversible with only mitigating therapy available so far. This study intends to carry out an open, single-armed, phase I/II clinical trial to investigate whether lung stem cells can regenerate damaged lung tissue. During the treatment, lung stem cells will be isolated from patients' own bronchi and expanded in vitro. After careful characterization, cultured cells will be injected directly into the lesion by fiberoptic bronchoscopy. The safety and efficacy of the treatment will be monitored by measuring the key clinical indicators.

Lung Biopsy in Interstitial Lung Diseases: There Is More than One Way to Cook an Egg.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.

Water content outside of the lung vasculature. About 80% of a normal lung is made up of water, including intracellular, interstitial, and blood water. Failure to maintain the normal homeostatic fluid exchange between the vascular space and the interstitium of the lungs can result in PULMONARY EDEMA and flooding of the alveolar space.

A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of asbestos fibers which elicit potent inflammatory responses in the parenchyma of the lung. The disease is characterized by interstitial fibrosis of the lung, varying from scattered sites to extensive scarring of the alveolar interstitium.

A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.

Pathological processes involving any part of the LUNG.
