Breakthroughs in medicine have revealed that neural stem cells have the power of rescuing degenerated memory caused by Alzheimer’s disease, which has given hope in the treatment of this debilitating disease. This is due to the fact that the stem cells contain BDNF or brain derived neurotopic factors, which help tissue grow new neuritis or the connecting links between neurons. The stem cells are important in helping the brain create new synapses, as well as restoring neurons.
Research has also revealed that there are human growth factors involved, which contribute to the stimulation of blood stem cells. This results in the growth of bone marrow, which was shown to genetically change the body’s reception to Alzheimer’s disease in mice. A granulocyte-stimulating factor or the GCSF in the stem cells are also effective in minimizing the amount of the protein beta amyloids, which are brain clogging, and are found in large amounts in brains of mice inflicted with Alzheimer’s.
They also stimulate the growth of neurons and nerve cell connections. GCSF is used to treat cancer patients who have a low white blood cell and blood stem cell count due to radiation or chemotherapy treatments. It is a blood stem cell growth hormone, which works through encouraging production of white blood cells in the bone marrow, which the human body needs to effectively fight off disease.
It is also used by donors of bone marrow transplants to strengthen the amount of stem cells in their blood prior to harvesting. GCSF has also shown to be promising in treating stroke, although there are still advanced clinical trials being conducted to study its effectiveness.
Stem Cell Treatment or Therapy is intended as an improvement on ones condition. It is not a “cure all” or “miracle pill.” the doctors have performed hundreds of procedures with great results and results will vary according to each individual patient!
