Question about Stem cell therapy

Hi I'm new on here and have COPD and Emphesyma I am English but I live in Morocco because the climate is better for me. I've had 4 chest infections in the past 6 weeks :-( I was told by my Dr here about a new treatment stem cell therapy, I've done some research and it seems a positive step forward albeit expensive but what price for health.Anyway has anybody had this done or any info would really be appreciated thank you Linda

Hi, a warm welcome to you. mmm, Morocco, how lovely. I lived in Libya for 6 years & loved the healthy climate so I quite see why you're there.

Sorry I dont know about the research but looking forward to replies to your great question.

All the best, P

There is currently NO EVIDENCE supporting the use of stem cell therapy in COPD. There is hope and promise that there may be in years or decades to come however at this time there are no placebo controlled clinical trials demonstrating any effectiveness,
