Stem Cell Therapy - A Solution for Parkinson's disease
Date:10/23/2013

LA JOLLA, Calif., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- "Stem cell therapy is an enthralling new achievement for the management of Parkinson's disease," said Dr. Stacy, the Vice Dean for Clinical Research, Neurology at Duke University School of Medicine.

According to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Parkinson's disease in the U.S. alone affects one in 100 people over 60 and 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year. Additionally, today's best Parkinson's drug was discovered in 1967.

Fast forward to 2013, stem cells offer a window into brain degenerating Parkinson's disease (PD). Scientists have found stem cells to be especially promising for treating rapidly-progressing diseases. Current findings propose that stem cells are appropriate in the management of neurodegenerative disorders.

Adipose-derived adult stem (ADAS) cells are the multipotent cells and precursors for the important cells of the central nervous system. Researchers have found that these stem cells self-renew and provide a therapeutic effect by differentiating into dopaminergic neurons and expressing neurotrophic factors e.g. brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and glial derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF). All these facilitate protection of the nigrostriatal system thus offering a revolutionary and new prospect for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, particularly in cases where existing dopamine-replacement approaches remain unsuccessful to satisfactorily combat the symptoms.  (PD is the result of loss of dopamine-generat
