New Treatment for Alzheimer's


Posted by Maraheve

Living with the everyday strain of a difficult health condition or disease can be overwhelming but there is hope. Many are still unaware that there is relief from symptoms and improvement in function through adult stem cell therapies.   Stem cell therapy is currently helping hundreds of patients each year with remarkable results.   Though this technology is still limited in the United States, it is being used as tool to fight various conditions and illnesses around the world, including Alzheimer’s.

Please understand as we do, that even though these treatments are making dramatic headway in previously untreatable illnesses, they are not a miracle cure.   There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration to help predict how successful therapy will be.   Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about how adult stem cells might help you.

Several recent articles indicate Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is a prion disease.

UCSC researchers find key to prion diseases

"“Human prion diseases include classic and variant types of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, mad cow disease, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's."
Researchers have found prions in blood, urine, saliva and feces of human and animal victims of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs - prion diseases).

"OPKO Health Announces Development of Blood Test for Alzheimer’s Disease
February 11, 2010 10:47 AM Eastern Time 
MIAMI--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--OPKO Health, Inc. (NYSE Amex:OPK) today announced the development of a
simple diagnostic blood test for Alzheimer’s disease. The test, designed to detect elevated levels of antibodies unique
to Alzheimer’s disease, was approximately 95% accurate in initial testing. "

Detection of prions in blood.

Department of Neurology, University of Texas Medical Branch, 301 University Boulevard, Galveston, Texas, 77555-0646, USA.

"These findings represent the first time that PrP(Sc) has been detected biochemically in blood, offering promise for developing a noninvasive method for early diagnosis of prion diseases."

"The human prion is resistant to both heat and chemicals and is reported to be up to a hundred thousand times more difficult to deactivate than the animal form of infective agent which causes well known diseases in cattle, such as mad cow disease, and scrapie in sheep. "
Any error in identifying a CJD-carrier can be fatal and costly - many hospitals around the world have been forced to destroy millions of dollars worth of instruments when patients were diagnosed with CJD some time after undergoing routine eye and neurosurgical procedures.
A further factor limiting decontamination from prions is that existing cleaning protocols are damaging to medical instruments such as flexible endoscopes and some instruments used in neurosurgical, dental and opthalmological procedures."
*********************************************************************
There are 5.3 million AD victims in the United States, with a new case every 70 seconds - an epidemic of almost a half million new cases of a transmissible prion disease each year.    The CDC and medical community must promptly deal with the  issue of potential iatrogenic transmission of Alzheimer's Disease.
