PNEUMONIA / ASTHMA DISEASE

INTRODUCTION INTRODUCTION

Pneumonia is a type of acute respiratory infection that affects the lungs and can be caused by bacteria, fungus, or viruses. On the other hand, asthma is a chronic (long-lasting) disease that affects the lungs’ airways due to inflammation and mucus build-up.

Figure 1 The structure of the lungs.

PNEUMONIA / ASTHMA DISEASE

Asthma is an on-going respiratory condition characterized by bronchospasm and inflammation. The lining of the airways swells and becomes obstructed with fluid and mucus, resulting in inflamed airways. When the muscles around the airways tighten and constrict, it causes bronchospasm, which narrows the airways.


Pneumonia, on the other hand, is a short-term respiratory illness brought on by an infection. The lung air sacs become inflamed as a result of this infection and patients may experience a cough, fever, and breathing problems. 


Asthma sufferers may find pneumonia to be a serious problem.

SYMPTOM

Asthma and pneumonia can have identical symptoms, making it challenging for medical professionals to diagnose pneumonia.

Both pneumonia and asthma can result in:​

  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath
  • an increased respiratory rate
  • an increased pulse
  • coughing
  • wheezing

WHAT CAUSES THE DISEASE? THE DISEASE?

Pneumonia is caused by a number of infectious agents, including viruses, bacteria and fungi. The most common are:

TYPES OF INFECTION AGENTS

EXPLAINATION

Bacteria

Streptococcus pneumonia

This kind of pneumonia can develop independently or following a cold or the flu. The illness, known as lobar pneumonia, may only affect one lobe of the lung.

Bacteria-like organism

Mycoplasma pneumonia

This type of pneumonia, which often doesn’t require bed rest, is known colloquially as “walking pneumonia.”

Fungi

People with weak immune systems, chronic health conditions, and those who have breathed high concentrations of the organisms are more likely to get this type of pneumonia. Depending on where you live, different fungus may be present in the soil or in bird droppings.

Viruses

In children under the age of five, viruses are the most frequent cause of pneumonia. Typically, viral pneumonia is not serious. However, it can occasionally get really bad.

​Key causes of asthma :

  • Infections of the respiratory system (e.g., the common cold)
  • Pollution of air (e.g., smoke)
  • Airborne allergens (e.g., pollen)
  • Certain drugs (e.g., aspirin)
  • Stress
  • Sulfites and other preservatives in beverages and food

WHAT WE OFFER? OFFER?

EXOSOME THERAPY - CELLTIX CELLTIX

CelltiX is a type of extracellular vesicle from Umbilical Cord-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) manufactured in a cGMP-compliant facility.

It is a novel form of a major paracrine factor released by MSCs into a culture medium, which plays an important role in a wide range of biological processes.

STEM CELL THERAPY - CELLTIMAX CELLTIMAX

CelltiMax is a product derived from human umbilical cord-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). The cells are cultured, then administered to the patient via intramuscular or intravenous injection. They have the ability to differentiate into specialized cells with specific functions for various parts of the body, and can reduce inflammation, repair, renew, regenerate, and replace damaged cells.

COMPARISON BETWEEN STEM CELLS AND EXOSOMES AND EXOSOMES

CRITERIAS

STEM CELLS

EXOSOMES

Definition

​​Stem cells are unspecialized cells of the human body.

 

​​Extracellular vesicles, which is the medical term for tiny bubbles that are released from stem cells.

Function

​Unique, can become any type of cell, and they act as both building blocks and repair mechanisms in your body.

​Carry genetic information and proteins to cells throughout your body, and they create paths for communication between cells.

Origins

​Donor stem cells are placed in your body and are guided into becoming specific cells in the body to replace and repair diseased cells.

​Exosomes are extracted from donated human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and sterilized.

Growth Factors

​Less amount of growth factors compared to exosomes.

​Exosomes contain nearly three times the amount of growth factors. More growth factors mean a better ability to restore and revitalize target cells

Administration

  • ​IV Stem Cell Therapy (Intravenous administration)
  • Intrathecal (directly into the spinal canal)
  • Site injections into problem areas (Knee, hips, hands, etc)
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy
  • Direct injection in the treatment area​
