New Study Yields Unique Drug Responses With Patient-Derived Stem Cells


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 [...]

Brain Stem Cell Transplant Potential Parkinson’s Treatment


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 [...]
