Parkinson's and Alzheimer's patients with new hope

The study carried out by the universities of Glasgow and Southamptonin the United Kingdom they created the first plastic surface with "nanopatterns" , it is covered with tiny pits, which helps the stem cells to grow and expand.


Currently the process of culture It is complicated because the growth of stem cells on standard plastic does not always expand to create new stem cells, but rather to create other cells that do not work for therapies.


This new plate was created using manufacturing processes similar to those used to produce discs Blu-ray which makes it more effective to allow the growth of stem cells and their conversion to useful cells for therapies.



It is hoped that this discovery will lead to the creation of therapies with stem cells on a large scale, for the regeneration of bone Y tissue ; to treat diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
