Stem Cell Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease

 Mathew Blurton-Jones Ph.D.
Description: What is a Stem Cell? Stem cells can make precise copies of themselves over and over again and stem cells can “differentiate” or mature into several cell types. What are Stem Cells? the raw material from which a body is built. Alzheimer Disease (AD): Could stem cells be used to replace the neurons that have been lost in AD? It is very unlikely that a cell-replacement approach could be developed to treat advanced AD. For a Cell Replacement therapy you would need to: Make appropriate neural stem cells in vitro, Transplant cells that can survive and differentiate into multiple different types of mature neurons, Have the transplanted neurons extend axons and dendrites into appropriate target regions, Form appropriate synaptic connections.
