A Review of Stem Cell Therapy for Alzheimer’s Disease
In a new open-access paper, the potential of regenerative medicines for treating Alzheimer’s is examined . The review discusses approaches like stimulating the production of new neuronal cells and transplanting them, while also taking a closer look at disease-modeling techniques and approaches that scientists are now using to refine their approaches to treating Alzheimer’s.
Authors of this article examine how induced pluripotent cells (iPSCs), which allow researchers to develop increasingly refined models for Alzheimer’s, are contributing to growing knowledge. Animal models are not able to accurately mimic the disease in humans, which is why many drugs that have been tested in mice do not work in clinical trials. The review looks at the challenges that scientists are facing and what they are doing to improve models.
The following is a brief introduction to the topic:
