Adipose-derived adult stem (ADAS) cells are the multipotent cells and precursors for the important cells of the central nervous system. Researchers have found that these stem cells self-renew and provide a therapeutic effect by differentiating into dopaminergic neurons and expressing neurotrophic factors e.g. brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and glial derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF). All these facilitate protection of the nigrostriatal system thus offering a revolutionary and new prospect for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, particularly in cases where dopamine-replacement approaches remain unsuccessful to satisfactorily combat the symptoms. (PD is the result of loss of dopamine-generating cells in the nigrostriatal system).  (PRNewsFoto/StemGenex)
