Researchers from Tongji University, China, have announced a breakthrough for treating lung disease by using stem cell therapy to regenerate tissue.
Researchers report that in a clinical trial pilot, the treatment was effective in repairing lung tissue for two patients with lung disease. Both the symptoms and CT scans showed improvement. Zuo Wei, a professor at Tongji University who led the team of researchers, says.
