Belarusian scientists develop technique for accelerated recovery of nerve cells

Nerve cells cannot be restored! Many of us are so accustomed to this expression that they perceive it as an immutable truth. In fact, this is a myth that is refuted by scientific research.

Belarusian scientists went further and developed a technique for accelerated recovery of nerve cells. Thanks to a new field of research - gene therapy - the process can take place 2 to 5 times faster than before.

Accelerated recovery of nerve cells will help in the treatment of neurodegenerative illnesses.

According to the World Health Organization, there are about 48 million people with Alzheimer's disease alone around the world. And growing statistics of the disease is depressing.

Before the technique starts to be used in medicine, at least 5-7 years will pass.

Gene therapy has proved effective in the field of cancer treatment. Scientists began to confidently say that the medicine for the plague of the 21st century is at the stage of study and research.

However, gene therapy can be called a breakthrough in science and medicine already at this stage of research.

After all, there were no "golden pills" from such diseases before that time. Now many people and their relatives have a chance for a healthy happy life.
