Stem Cell Therapy for Alzheimer's
Stem Cell Therapy for Alzheimer’s
- Improve functional memory
- Regenerate neurons
- Improve overall functional recovery
- Replace damaged cells with health cells
Stem cell therapy is a new scientific approach to treating Alzheimer’s Disease. It is done by systemic administration of Mesenchymal Stem Cells into the body intravenously. When these stem cells are administered to the body, they find inflammation within the body and repair it. This unique property of stem cells is what makes them a viable treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease.
How do stem cells treatment help Alzheimer’s?
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) or stromal stem cells have the ability to differentiate into many different types of cells within the body, including bone cells, cartilage, muscle cells, and even neural cells. They are primarily found inside bone marrow and remain dormant till called upon to promote healing inside the body.
“Stem cells have therapeutic effects by regeneration and substitution of cells and tissues by their self renewal property. The therapeutic strategy of stem cells has different ways. One is by activation of endogenous stem cell, and the other is by regenerating the injured cell or tissues through stem cell transplantation”.
Stem cells have the potency to improve functional recovery for Alzheimer’s.
The transplantation of stem cells is able to improve functional recovery for Alzheimer’s Disease. The transplantation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) is able to reduce Aβ deposition, to improved memory and to decrease the AD pathology in AD mouse models.
What makes stem cell therapy for Alzheimer’s so exciting is its ability to halt the progression of the disease as well as regenerate damaged neurons rather than just slowing it, or managing symptoms.
