Research discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine are beginning to advance and refine our understanding of lung injury and repair. Although these emerging studies offer unprecedented opportunities to develop novel therapies for a variety of lung diseases, the quickening pace of work in this nascent field also makes it difficult to discern hope from hype when addressing the pleas of patients eager for clinical translation or when seeking information on the risk… CONTINUE READING
