Potential treatment for A** on the horizon

Basically they took stem cells and put them into rats destined to get A**. Those who received the transplants lived somewhat longer than those who did not.

The interesting thing is, they only transplanted into the lower spine of these rats, not the upper spine, because of their small size. If they could swing the upper spine in humans we might be seeing something approaching A** becoming a "manageable" disease.
