Stem Cells Slow the Rate of Decline in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

Stem Cells Slow the Rate of Decline in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

Progressive supranuclear palsy, also known as PSP, is a disorder of the brain that gets worse over time (progressive neurodegenerative disorder). Many progressive supranuclear palsy symptoms are similar to Parkinson’s disease. These include rigidity, slowness of movement, cognitive (thinking) problems, difficulty speaking, and difficulty swallowing. While people with Parkinson’s disease can have an unsteady gait…

Researchers Suggest A Way to Test the Safety of Stem Cell Therapy in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

A recent publication in the Journal of Translational Medicine has highlighted the potential for stem cells to help patients with progressive supranuclear palsy and has proposed measures for testing the safety of stem cell therapy. Like Parkinson’s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy is a neurodegenerative disease that is progressive and characterized by abnormal deposits of the protein tau…
