Future Prospects of Stem Cells in CNS Disorders

Barnali Roy | Amit Kumar Pal

Abstract: There are several types of disorders among which some are high profile disorders of central nervous system which affects millions of people in every year. Neuro-degeneration actually is the loss of neurons causing structural abnormalities or failure to function which leads to disorders of central nervous system. The neural stem cells of adult brain, with limited potentiality, are able to develop functional neurons during injury. The main characteristics of stem cells are their endogenous trophic support, replacing ability of nonfunctional cells. For these reasons they are being utilized in recovering central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Some major CNS disorders are Parkinsons disease (PD), Hungtington disease (HD), Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Ischemia, Spinal Cord Injuries, Epilepsy etc.

Keywords: Neural stem cell, neuro-degeneration, Parkinsone diserase, Hungtington desease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ALS, Ischemia, Spinal Cord injuries, Epilepsy, stem cell based therapy
