Stem Cells from Fat Tissue Protect Motor Neurons in ALS Mice

Stem cells derived from fat tissue significantly improved motor function and delayed disease onset by protecting motor neurons in a mouse model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a study shows. The study, “Adipose derived stem cells protect motor neurons and reduce glial activation in both in vitro and in vivo models of ALS,” was published in the journal Molecular Therapy, Methods & Clinical Development.  Stem cell therapy represents a potential therapeutic approach to treat ALS.…
