Spheroid stem cell production sows hope for IPF treatment

In a small pilot study, researchers from have demonstrated a rapid, simple way to generate large numbers of lung for use in . This method of harvesting and growing a patient’s own lung shows promise in mice for treating (IPF), and could one day provide human IPF sufferers with an effective, less invasive method of treatment for their disease.
