Preventing and Curing Memory Disorders

There are currently no FDA-approved uses for gene therapy or stem cell methods in the treatment of memory disorders; all of the work in these areas is at the early investigational stage. However, research in the realm of cell transplants and gene therapy may hold the promise of preventing or curing memory disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. These technologies may one day be used to prevent age-related memory loss as well.

Some experimental paradigms involve a combination of cell transplants and gene transfer methods. In some cases, cell transplants are being used as vehicles for ferrying genes into the brain and other parts of the body for therapeutic purposes. In other experiments, cells are genetically modified before implantation to make them act in a specific, potentially therapeutic way.
