Adult Stem Cells to Treat Parkinson’s

Bradley Mattes   |   August 15, 2018

A team of researchers are getting a clinical trial underway this month to treat Parkinson’s disease with adult stem cells.  Last year they were successful using monkeys.  This research, the world’s first, will take place at Japan’s Kyoto University, headed by Dr. Yamanaka who shared a Nobel Prize for medicine for his discovery of human induced pluripotent stem cells which will be used.  The treatment uses the patient’s own stem cells, which doesn’t kill human embryos like another trial.  A pharmaceutical company is waiting in the wings to manufacture and sell cellular medicine based on data from this clinical trial.  They hope to have the drugs available by 2023.  Success would be a huge blessing.
