Possible progress against Parkinson’s and good news for stem cell therapies

Researchers have taken an important step toward using the implantation of stem cell-generated neurons as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Using an FDA approved substance for treating cancer, they were able to grow dopamine-producing neurons derived from embryonic stem cells that remained healthy and functional for as long as 15 months after implantation into mice, restoring motor function without forming tumors. —> Read More
