Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome ARDS Stem Cell Treatment
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome ARDS Stem Cell Treatment is a stem cell therapy done with an 200 million stem cell IV followed by 4 sessions of 25 million nebulized stem cells. ARDS is one of those diseases that doctors currently can only manage the symptoms after lung failure. Mesenchymal Stem Cells flip this paradigm as they have now been found to treat ARDS with great success. When Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are administered via IV they go directly to the lungs first. This is called the first pass and a great thing for ARDS as the majority of the stem cells (approximately 80%) never get past the lungs and heart. The stem cells are attracted to inflammation and the lungs are full of it. They get to work by guiding the removal of fibrosis (scarring) and then guiding the cellular repair. ARDS typically leaves patients with severely damaged lungs and no way to repair and regenerate. The MSCs are able to help you get your breath back.
- Blood Panel to give you a baseline to compare and measure effects
- 200 million mesenchymal stem cells administered via IV
- 25 million mesenchymal stem cells administered via nebulization twice a day for 2 days for a total of 100 million
The first day you arrive is to settle in and rest. You fast that night and next morning until we do a blood panel around 8 or 9am. We also need to know what medications you are on as some medications need to be stopped for a few days leading up to this treatment. For the stem cells we need you to stop taking any Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) a week before getting stem cell treatment. You can use them afterwards. The most prominent NSAIDs are aspirin, ibuprofen and nap
Side Effects or Risks
The only side effects that have been documented are the following:
- 1 in 100 people will experience a slight fever and/or headache for a few hours after treatment or the next day.
Our lab has over 8 years specializing in Mesenchymal Stem Cell research. Our lab has done a maximum of 1 billion stem cells via IV with no negative side effects. See Stem Cell Certification by Clicking Here.
As with any medical treatment, there is no guarantee of success.

Why do we need Mesenchymal Stem Cells?
We need more stem cells as we age, but our body is using them up. When we are infants, we have the most stem cells that we will ever have and then by the time we grow up to bone maturity, we only have 10% of these cells left. Only 10% and that is all we have left to work with for the rest of our lives. Cells die off as we age and that percentage goes down even further every year.
How do Mesenchymal Stem Cells Work?
Mesenchymal Stem cell therapies work by stimulating the body to regenerate itself. Their magic is not in their ability to become or replace different tissues or cells, but in their production of trophic factors, bioactive molecules produced in response to the environment in which the cells are in. These secreted chemicals aid in repairing tissue and the recruitment of new blood vessels to support nutrient flow to the area and decrease inflammation. By repairing tissue, recruiting new blood vessels and increased nutrient flow your body will start to behave the way it is meant to operate. So it is not the cells themselves that work the magic. It is what the cells secrete that has such medicinal potential. This is called the paracrine effect. We like to think of the mesenchymal stem cells as the managers on the construction site, guiding the workers to repair the building.
More info on the Mesenchymal Stem Cell Secretions
Mesenchymal Stem cells (MSCs) secrete a wide range of cellular products, molecules, exosomes and microvesicles That act in different ways to stimulate the body’s healing process. For ARDs they will guide the removal of scar tissue that is getting in the way of proper healing. Then they will help create a cellular matrix around damaged areas and bring in growth factors to heal. For nerve damage the main secretion that you want are neurotrophic factors. The neurotrophic factors will guide neurons in helping to regenerate damaged nerves.
Growth Factors Aid in Healing
Growth factors (A growth factor is a naturally occurring substance capable of stimulating cellular growth, proliferation, healing, and cellular differentiation. Usually, it is a protein or a steroid hormone. Growth factors are important for regulating a variety of cellular processes. Cytokines (Cytokines are a broad and loose category of small proteins that are important in cell signaling. Their release has an effect on the behavior of cells around them. It can be said that cytokines are involved in autocrine signaling, paracrine signaling and endocrine signaling as immunomodulating agents.), hormones, cellular and mitochondria are among the secreted bioactive molecules and cellular material that characterize the wide range of activities carried out by mesenchymal stem cells. When considering that the main function of stem cells lies in their secretome. This is the bioactive molecules they secrete. This means they don’t have the ability to differentiate into new tissue, but instead allow your own body to heal itself properly. Isolating these trophic factors separate from the cells offers an intriguing mode of treatment.
Do the Mesenchymal Stem Cell Treatment Results Last?
The results from the ARDs stem cell treatment are lasting because your body is able to heal itself like when you were younger. That healing does not go away fast, just think of how many years it took to get you where you are. By getting this treatment once or twice a year, your body will be able to regenerate more and more. The 300 million cells will stay in your system indefinitely. They reside in your capillaries. So any extra space available is filled with the stem cells and they can stay with you indefinitely. The rest of the stem cells circulate in your blood stream looking for areas of inflammation and cells to help. Usually after 8 to 12 months the circulating MSCs will differentiate, and they are then flushed out by the immune system with no side effects or issues. Mesenchymal stem cells are the only cells that have been found able to donate mitochondria to weak or injured cells, thus making them whole again.
