Stem Cell Therapy For Alzheimer’s Disease

When we consider the most popular ailments that affect the elderly populace, Alzheimer’s disease is top on the list. In the United States today, about 5.8 million patients over the age of 65 battle Alzheimer’s disease. With patients over the age of 75, there’s an 80% chance of being affected by this disease. 

Alzheimer’s disease is a neural disorder that occurs when the brain shrinks or atrophies. The condition causes the cells in the brain to die, which can escalate with time. When we consider the causes, the most common one is dementia. Dementia on its own can cause a decline in thinking abilities, affecting both behavioral and social skills, which have an effect on the patient’s ability to function properly and independently.

Symptoms and Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and cognitive skills. In the early stages of the disease, people may experience mild memory loss or confusion. As the disease progresses, they may begin to lose their ability to communicate, take care of themselves, and recognize loved ones.

There is no one symptom of Alzheimer’s disease, and symptoms will differ from person to person. Below are some common early- and late-stage symptoms:

Early-stage symptoms:

  • Memory loss or forgetfulness, especially about recent events
  • Difficulty planning or solving problems
  • Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, at work, or at leisure
  • Confusion about time or place
  • Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships
  • New problems with words in speaking or writing

Late-stage symptoms:

  • Severe memory loss, including forgetting one’s own name
  • Disorientation, confusion about where they are or how they got there
  • Difficulty communicating, often reduced to single words or phrases
  • Complete dependence on others for basic care

If you notice any of these symptoms in yourself or a loved one, it’s important to see a doctor right away. While there is no one test that can definitively diagnose Alzheimer’s disease, a combination of medical and cognitive tests can be used to rule out other potential causes of dementia.

Early diagnosis is important because it allows patients and their families to plan for the future and access treatments that can help slow the progression of the disease.

Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease

Before now, the available treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease have been temporary ones, and they were only used to manage the associated symptoms. However, with the introduction of stem cell therapy, there are now prospects for better and advanced treatment.

Stem Cells are typically multipotent cells that have the ability to differentiate into any cell type as required. Neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s disease have a high chance of causing incapacitation in patients, which may prevent the appropriate functioning of several parts of the brain.

At R3 Stem Cell, we offer such patients a chance to get a distinctive and effective treatment plan that can repair their brain damage. Human neural stem cell-derived extracellular vesicles deliver a higher chance than any existing treatment option to repair the brain damage associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
