Scientists have developed a method to track transplanted stem cells in the brain
Stem cell therapies have emerged as promising therapeutic options for treating many degenerative diseases including neurodegenerative diseases. The neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by the progressive degeneration of neurons. Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Huntington’s disease are the most prevalent examples of neurodegenerative disorders. A variety of stem cells, including pluripotent embryonic stem cells, multipotent adult stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been utilized as therapeutic agents to treat many neurological disorders.
