Alzheimer's in a dish: Stem cells from patients offer model and drug-discovery platform for early-onset form of disease
from Medical Xpress
Harvard stem cell scientists have successfully converted skins cells from patients with early-onset Alzheimer's into the types of neurons that are affected by the disease, making it possible for the first time to study this leading form of dementia in living human cells. This may also make it possible to develop therapies far more quickly and accurately than before.
