Stem Cell Therapy Shows Evidence of Aiding Cognition, Lowering Amyloid Load in Mouse Model of Alzheimer’s
Neuralstem’s stem cell therapy for Alzheimer’s disease was found to improve cognition and lessen the load of amyloid-beta plaques in a mouse model of the disease, a study reports, recommending work continue into this possible Alzheimer's treatment. The therapy, called NSI-532.IGF1, combines human neural stem cells with IGF1, a factor that helps prevent degeneration of nerve cells. The study, “Human neural stem cell transplantation improves cognition in a murine model of Alzheimer’s disease,” was published in the journal Scientific Reports. “Alzheimer’s disease is a leading cause of dementia and there are
