From Alzheimer's Daily News:

 

(Source: Heraldonline.com) - Researchers at Korea's leading university and the RNL Bio Stem Cell Technology Institute announced the results of a study that suggests an astounding possibility: adult stem cells may not only have a positive effect on those suffering from Alzheimer's disease, they can prevent the disease.

Using fat-derived adult stem cells from humans, researchers were able to cause Alzheimer's disease brains in animal models to regenerate. For the first time in history, stem cells were used to identify the mechanism that is key to treatment of Alzheimer's disease, and demonstrated how to achieve efficacy as well as prevention of the symptoms of Alzheimer's with adult stem cells.
