Well, yes, what you heard is right. If your own stem cells are transplanted then yes, they can regenerate your lungs. However, this requires millions of stem cells. This is still in experimental stage. This is because it is difficult to generate millions of stem cells from your body. To do this the doctors will have to multiply them outside the body. Once this process is started the efficacy of stem cells decreases. Most of this treatment is in infancy stage and available through clinical trials for patients with no hope with other treatments. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
