Can Stem Cell Therapy Help to Treat Covid-19 Patients?
Recently a team in Abu Dhabi have announced that they have been investigating a new stem cell-based therapy to help treat lung damage that can occur as a result of COVID-19 infection. The team are taking stem cells from the blood of some patients who are showing signs of lung complications and after working on these cells in the laboratory, they are administering them back to the same patients by inhalation.
The science behind the processes has not yet been published. This is still a work in progress but so far it seems that the treatment is safe. It will take time to determine if this is of benefit to patients alongside treatments that they are already receiving.
