A new study of mitochondrial deficits in iPSC-derived neural cells, funded by the National Institutes of Health and published in Science Translational Medicine, shows that patient-derived stem cells yield differing responses for cells derived from patients with different etiologies of Parkinson’s disease. The study suggests that Parkinson’s intervention may someday be tailored to individuals based [...]

Researchers say they have completed a new stem cell transplant that rebuilds the circuits in the brain of mice. This could lead eventually to new treatments for conditions from Parkinson’s disease to autism. In the experiment, a team at Harvard University embedded healthy stem cells from mouse embryos into the brains of adult laboratory rodents [...]

The treatment is called hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), consists of removing the patient’s immune and other blood cells, then replacing them with new bone marrow stem cells from the same patient.
