Progress in Differentiation Accelerates Stem Cell Treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Posted by on Nov 7, 2012 5:00:58 AM

Researchers at Gutenberg University Mainz have found a way to generate human neurons from pericytes, cells found in the central nervous system, through the use of stem cells. The researchers have observed the process of differentiation that stem cells undergo when they become a new type of cell, and have induced stem cells to go through this process. Therefore, these cells have been directed to become new neuronal cells.

Advances in differentiation techniques to regenerate neuronal cells will accelerate potential treatments for degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s; where treatment are being developed to replace neural cells lost to degradation with newly created neural cells.

The best cells to use in these emerging regenerative therapies will be the patient’s own stem cells. To learn more about stem cells and how to bank your own valuable stem cells, visit or call 877-783-6728 877-StemSave) today.
