The purpose

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD)is characterized by recurrent cough, expectoration and asthma, and eventually develop chronic pulmonary heart disease ,chronic respiratory failure and even death. The current clinical treatments for these patients are symptomatic treatment cannot solve the problem of the damaged lung structure fundamentally. Recent studies show that bronchial basement the layer of cells is a kind of cells in the bronchial epithelial basal layer position, the specific expression of Krt5 antigen with the regeneration and repair of lung function , these cells have the activity similar to adult tissue stem cells. Its division and migration are more active and can continue to produce new cells to complement the death of other types of epithelial cells with functional plasticity which can be used to direct repair the bronchial and alveolar structures. It has been proved that bronchial basal cell transplantation can repair the damaged lungs of experimental animals . The bronchial basal cells from autologous tissue, so there is no immune rejection problem. Also because the bronchial basal cells derived from adult tissues which is a part of the body, so there is no risk of a tumor (in animal experiments, In animal experiments, bronchial basal cells transtracheal input 100 times in human dose still no tumor formation). In the early stage, patients with COPD (2 cases), bronchiectasis (2 cases) and interstitial lung disease (1 case) received the treatment, and the overall effect was good. Diseases were alleviated and recovered to some different extend.The study was to brush bronchial basal cells through fiberbronchoscopy in COPD patients and cultured in vitro, and then through the bronchoscope transfusion to the lesion site. To preliminary evaluate the efficacy and safety of autologous bronchial basal cells in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
