Staying true to our goal of "demystifying science", we would like to highlight the potential stem cells could have to treat serious, chronic diseases affecting millions of us worldwide.
We're beginning with Alzheimer's.
There is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but many new treatments are being studied with great potential to treat the root causes of this devastating disease - down at the cellular level.
To date, over 5 million people have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States alone. The only treatments currently available for Alzheimer's only help manage symptoms and cannot reverse the damage the disease has caused. Because of these current limitations, researchers are using stem cells to help understand the disease and also to develop new therapies for the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s. There are two potential ways that stem cells could be beneficial:
Reducing inflammation - stem cells interact with the immune system in a way that can bring down the chronic inflammation in the brain that damages brain cells.
Replacement - stem cells could replace dead or damaged cells in the brain, but this is a more challenging approach.
