Scientists have found that regardless of their stage in life, lung cells are able to regenerate themselves in order to repair missing or damaged tissue.
The team behind the discovery hopes that they will one day be able to replicate this natural behavior in order to help repair tissue damage in patients with conditions such as COPD. The new study is just one of many focusing on, not stem cells, but fully mature cells as a means of regrowing the human body.
