Alzheimer’s Disease affects almost 40 million people worldwide, and the numbers are climbing. For those who have gone through the experience of having a loved one with Alzheimer’s, you know that it can make you feel helpless. But what if a patient’s FAT could not only provide a treatment for the disease, but also possibly prevent it? When we hear “stem cells,” we think of controversial stem cells derived from fetal tissue- but did you know that adult stem cells can be derived from bone marrow or fat? Adult stem cells don’t differentiate quite as well as fetal stem cells, but studies are showing that they can be extremely useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. In a recent research study in Alzheimer’s mouse models, not only was the ability to learn and remember greatly improved after treatment with fat-derived stem cells, but there were significant differences in the pathology of these animals, suggesting a great potential to not only stop but to prevent the disease. Follow the link to check out the research study, performed by Bio Stem Cell Technology Institute, showing that stem cells derived from human fat can cause REGENERATION in the brains of mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease!
