Zeenews Bureau San Francisco: Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have, for the first time, transformed skin cells into early-stage brain stem cells called induced neural stem cells with the help of a gene called Sox2. Researchers suggest that such a transformation of cells could pave way for new ways to treat Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases.The Research comes at the time when it is a known fact that about 5.4 million people in the United States itself have Alzheimer’s disease and that number is expected to increase three times by 2050. At present, when there are no proper approved drug treatments to prevent the disease, this lab study proves to be a silver lining in the cloud.
