With fetal stem cell treatment, it is possible to gradually restore quite a few brain functions and there have been positive results so far. A complete hindrance of the development of the disease has been reported in approximately 75% of patients. Also, it has been proven to at least slow down the progressive deterioration of brain functions with the treatment.
However, it is safe to say that 90% of positive effects are seen when treatments have been started at the onset of Alzheimer’s. There have been some improvements in patients with organic brain lesion, also known as atrophy of fronto parietal lobes.
In cases where there are established mental disorders, the treatment has been proven to improve the overall quality of life – like sleep, appetite, stabilization of body weight etc.
For patients with Alzheimer’s two or three courses of treatments are necessary during the first year, followed by one course in the next 1-2 years to sustain the results.
