Abstract:Cell therapy is a promising approach for the treatment of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. However, the presence of toxic aggregates in tissue raises the question of whether grafted stem cells are susceptible to amyloid toxicity before they differentiate into mature neurons. To address this question, we investigated the relative vulnerability of human mesenchymal stromal cells and their neuronally differentiated counterparts to Aβ(42) oligomers and whether susceptibili… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
