Some species of jellyfish have unique abilities. They can turn the dying brain cells into new healthy and adults. The result of this special mechanism, it is possible to create a cure against Parkinson’s disease.
We are talking about the jellyfish Turritopsis dohrnii, discovered off the coast of Panami, Florida, Spain, Italy and Japan. Often the immortal jellyfish found in the Mediterranean sea.
To these beings, characterized by immortality, because they are able to painful or old able to return to polyp stage, where it is fully recovered and can continue the usual life cycle. They can repeat this an infinite number of times, which makes them virtually immortal.
Professor Shin Kubota from Kyoto University reported that only one colony of Turritopsis dohrnii for 2 years independently regenerated itself about 10 times. The experiment continues at the present time. Jellyfish are quite small – their sizes can be compared with the size of the little finger. The researchers noted that these creatures are quite difficult to learn, because they are very difficult to catch and keep in the laboratory. The problem also is that these jellyfish feed on many animals.
Scientists believe that the Turritopsis dohrnii will help humanity to defeat diseases of the brain. The study of immortal jellyfish will help to learn more about the mechanism of various diseases, including Parkinson’s. Doctors said that the essence of effective treatment is to replace damaged or lost neurons in the brain.
Recall that the procedure of blood transfusion improves the functional ability of people suffering from dementia
As reported by the portal “Znayu”, a wireless device implanted in the human brain, helps in the treatment of neurological disorders
Also “Znayu” wrote that scientists have developed a new high-tech method for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease
