According to the Mayo Clinic, one in four people aged 65 or above suffer from aftereffects of COVID-19.
It has been reported that people with long COVID often experience an extremely broad variety of symptoms, including less well-known side effects such as amnesia, manic disorders, insomnia and an inability to perform familiar movements or commands.
Panacell said it is believed that about four million people – or 2.4% of the U.S. employed population – have reduced ability to work because of long COVID or other other resulting effects from COVID such as rare disorders such as POTS Syndrome
There have been many clinical results in which the coronavirus causes inflammation in various organs, including the respiratory system, and chronic symptoms persist.
“The clinical treatment results show that the stem cell therapy has good safety and has also been confirmed to have a therapeutic effect. It was also effective in recovering the lungs.”
The Right To Try Act grants patients with life-threatening diseases access to experimental therapies that have not yet been approved.
Usually, the symptoms of long COVID are caused by the body’s own immune system response to the virus, which causes residual damage to various organs in the body. In addition to the damage from the virus, long COVID is concerning because the patients can incubate new variants of the disease.
Preclinical studies showed certain types of Stem Cells outperformed stem cells from other sources — including those derived from bone marrow or adipose (fatty) tissue — in their ability to reduce lung injury in a mouse model of emphysema, a severe form of COPD. Data also showed that they may lower some pro-inflammatory protein levels, while increasing those of anti-inflammatory markers.
Over the past decade, researchers have identified a variety of specialized stem cells in the lungs that can help regenerate damaged tissue. These stem cells can turn into almost all the different types of cells in the lungs depending on the signals they receive from their surrounding environment. Recent studies have highlighted the prominent role the immune system plays in providing signals that facilitate lung recovery. But these signals can produce more than one effect. They can not only activate stem cells, but also perpetuate damaging inflammatory processes in the lung. Therefore, your body tightly regulates when, where and how strongly these signals are made in order to prevent further damage.
