The study is being conducted by the Ageless Regenerative Institute in Tijuana aims to investigate the effect of the patient’s own stem cells in the treatment of moderate or severe Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease. The stem cells to be used in the trial will be obtained from the patient’s fat using liposuction and given back to the patient intravenously (ie through an IV). Patients will be assessed six months after treatment for complications and improvements in lung function. It is expected that they will enrol 30 patients between May 2011 and June 2013.
