Neurodegenerative diseases (NDDs) are complex disorders that degenerates central nervous system. To this end, we have achieved only palliative treatments and their success is limited. Emerging studies suggest stem cells could be an alternative to recover lost neural network. Transplanting stem cells for replacing damaged neurons is a pivotal step in cell replacement therapies. In this article, NDDs and their pathology, current methods of combating NDDs and potentiality of stem cells in treating NDDs have been reviewed briefly. In addition to this , technical issues that hamper clinical applications of stem cells in creating cellular models and grafted cells for neuron resurrection have been discussed.<br/>Copyright © 2016, Laboratory of Stem Cell Research and Application, HCMUS, VNU-HCM.
