HISTORY

Patient Liu, a 77-year-old male patient from China, was admitted at Puhua International Hospital in March 2008, due to left lung cancer. At the beginning of 2008, he presented with unexplained chest distress and pain. He did not search for a diagnosis or treatment at that time. In February 2008, the symptoms worsened and were accompanied with a hoarseness, cough, and expectoration. Blood was noted in his sputum. He received anti-inflammatory treatment, but his symptoms did not improve. He then was transferred to Puhua International Hospital. A thoracic CT scan taken after admission demonstrated: superior lobe of left lung, peripheral lung cancer, accompanied with metastasis to mediastinal lymph nodes. Considering that Mr. Liu was elderly, his family declined further evaluation. He was then admitted into the oncology department of PIH for a combined treatment that based on Stem Cell Therapy, with a diagnosis of “left lung cancer, accompanied with metastasis to mediastinal lymph node.”

Medical condition before Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for lung cancer

Before Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for lung cancer, Mr. Liu suffered from a hoarse voice, cough, and expectoration. There was blood in his sputum. He felt distress and pain in his chest. He complained about shortness of breath. Since he got the disease, no obvious weight loss was noted. On his physical examination, the breath sounds of left lung were a little rough.

Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for lung cancer

Seven courses of combined treatment based on stem cell therapy.

Medical condition before Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for lung cancer

After two courses of combined Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for his lung cancer, Mr. Liu felt much better than before treatment. His hoarse voice was improved. He also saw improvement regarding his cough and expectoration, and there was no blood in his sputum. He didn’t complain about chest distress and pain. His shortness of breath disappeared almost entirely. He had a good appetite and sleeping pattern. He also had good mental spirits. Mr. Liu had five more courses of the combined treatment. After the treatment, his symptoms had resolved: no cough, no expectoration, no shortness of breath, no chest distress, nor chest pain. He felt very good in general. Repeat thoracic CT scan revealed that the occupying lesions of left lobe and mediastinal lymph node had resolved, with slight residual pulmonary fibrosis locally. Patient Liu had insisted on Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for consolidation and maintenance therapy. Since treatment, his condition was stable and he enjoyed a renewed and much higher quality of life.
