Stem Cell Therapy for Alzheimer’s
In the case of disease such as Alzheimer’s, the brain looses its cells and connections between them, and the brain undergoes certain shrinkage. Patients suffering from this disease loose their ability to think, reason, make judgments and decisions, plan, and perform even simple tasks.
Until recently, it was believed that damaged brain tissue is a permanent condition. Nowadays the re-growth of brain cells and improvements of neurological function has been documented.
Stem cells are already a part of human repair system naturally. After reaching the brain organism, they replace damaged cells and the restoration of the brain begins. In fact, a growing number of reports indicate that stem cells have the ability to stimulate the generation of new neurons, oligo-dendrocytes, and astrocytes [Park and Eve, 2009; Galli et al., 2008; Srivastava et al., 2008].
Stem cell treatment acts as a form of medical time machine,
reversing the damage that has already been made.
When there is damage to areas of brain regulating memory, concentration, attention, and speech, stem cell treatment improves blood and oxygen flow to the brain, replaces damaged neurons, and stimulates formation of the new arteries.
