Gene therapy study shows safety and statistically significant improvement in Parkinson's disease
...of the body corresponding to the side of the brain receiving
treatment. Moreover, the absence of change at the earliest time point following treatment suggests that the improvement was not likely due to the surgical lesioning of the targeted brain region, as surgical approaches typically give rise to immediate...
Human stem cell treatment restores motor function in paralyzed rats
