Alzheimer's disease treatment

Alzheimer treatment at UCTC

Alzheimer's disease is a disease characterized by progressive cognitive decline and the development of behavioral disorders.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia developing in the middle and old age. The first symptoms may appear even after 40 years, and after the age of 70 incidence of the disease reaches 30%. Early cognitive manifestations of the disease in some patients can be identified already for 8 years prior to the diagnosis establishing in the case of a careful observation of the patient and his behavior under normal conditions for the patient. The most noticeable symptom in this case becomes a memory disorder that manifests itself in a person’s attempts to recall previously learned facts. Gradually, the person ceases to be oriented in place and time, first disrupted the memory of the event for the nearest time, and then of more distant, especially of the knowledge, experience, skills. Attempts to recall previously learned facts and trying to learn new information do not end successfully. Patient's recognition of shapes, colors, faces, sense of orientation in space and time are impaired.  Handwriting changes, speech becomes more and more incomprehensible, semantic memory - memory that is associated with the meaning of words is also impaired. Planning, concentration and abstract thinking become almost impossible.

Factors which increase the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease: unfamiliar place, staying alone for a long time, meeting with a large number of unfamiliar people, darkness (which requires illumination even at night), infectious diseases, hot weather, taking large amounts of drugs.

People with high intelligence are less likely to get sick because they have a greater number of connections between nerve cells, and thus at the death of some cells lost functions can be passed to others which have not previously been involved. Most often disease affects women - perhaps the reason is in longer life expectancy of women: many men simply don’t attain the age of Alzheimer's disease.

Morphologically it is shown in decreasing of brain volume and weight due to loss of neurons.



Risk factors for the disease:

- age after 60 years;

- overweight, obesity;

- head injury in the history;

- hypertonic disease;

- oxidative stress;

- electromagnetic radiation;

- poisoning of aluminum;

- the presence of the disease in close relatives.


The diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is put under the following criteria:

- Imperceptible onset of the disease;

- Relentlessly progressive course;

- The exclusion of all other causes of dementia.

Today, Alzheimer's disease is considered to be incurable and the only known treatment is symptomatic and aimed to eliminate depression, anxiety as well as to improve memory and thinking abilities, it is long-termed and does not always bring the desired improvement.

FSC treatment is aimed at restoring of lost and damaged nerve cells, as well as the correction of immunity. FSC are the only source of stem cells of neuroectoderm - the source of nerve cells and that's why they have the strongest potential for regenerating of damaged neurons. Microimmunotherapy helps to restore the body in the whole and is used as an auxiliary for the treatment of intercurrent diseases. The process of neurons regeneration begins slowly, their number increases and transmission of nerve impulses improves, resulting in regression of neurological symptoms and restoring of lost functions, which greatly improves the quality of life of a patient with Alzheimer's disease and his family. The percentage of the treatment success depends on the initial condition of the patient.

After the course of cell therapy based on fetal cell suspensions in patients with Alzheimer's disease following improvements are expected:

Memory improvement, especially short-term.


Improvement of cognitive functions: mood, oral and written communication and understanding of facing speech, behavior.
Orientation in space and time improves, and thus patients' self-service ability improves too. Improvement of visual perception and interpretation of the images, and things which are seen.
