The cells in our nervous system are extremely specialized, especially those in the brain. Unfortunately, nervous tissue does not have a great potential to regain function once it is lost. Exciting research is being done in the field of neuro-regenerative medicine which will give hope for improvement to those with chronic neurodegenerative disease or nerve damage from injury. Dr. Nathan Staff, a Mayo Clinic neurologist, joins us regarding the challenges with the current management of chronic neurodegenerative diseases and the future potential for treating such conditions as Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS and other neurodegenerative disease with regenerative medicine therapies.

Specific topics discussed:

  • Current research in regenerative medicine treatment for chronic neurodegenerative disease
  • Currently used regenerative medicine in neurologic conditions
  • New treatment options on the horizon for chronic neurodegenerative disease using regenerative medicine therapy
