Potential benefits of Stem Cell research for Alzheimer’s patients and their families.

Potential benefits of Stem Cell research for Alzheimer’s patients and their families.

“Stem cells are undifferentiated, primitive cells with the ability both to multiply and to differentiate into specific kinds of cells. Stem cells hold the promise of allowing researchers to grow specialized cells or tissue, which could be used to treat injuries or disease (e.g., spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, strokes, burns).” (Slevin, 2010) —– Discuss what are the potential benefits of stem cell research for Alzheimer’s patients and their families. —– Please provide supporting evidence. 1 page APA
