Treating Parkinson’s Disease With Stem Cells

A major breakthrough in the development of stem cell-derived brain cells has put researchers on a firm path towards the first ever stem cell transplantations in people with Parkinson’s disease. A new study presents the next generation of transplantable dopamine neurons produced from stem cells. These cells carry the same properties as the dopamine neurons found in the human brain.

Did you have any in vivo studies (mouse model) showing successful implantation? Where do you plan implanting the stem cells - basal ganglia or substantia nigra? Why do you think the multi - center, international embryonic patients study (Sweden was one of the center) showed no difference between treatment group and control?
