A few years ago we did try a stem cell approach for curing APBD. Neurological stem cell therapy is an expertise of our Department with world leading researchers such as Profs. Karussis and Ben Hur. However, as initial POC experiments involving brain marrow-derived stem cells co-culturing with APBD patient cells as well as incubation of APBD cells with the medium overlaying these stem cells did not show any positive results we did not pursue this direction.
