What is Parkinson’s Disease and How Can Stem Cells Help?

Parkinson’s disease is a debilitating condition that affects about a million people in the United States each year. You may be familiar with Parkinson’s disease or heard of it due to the diagnosis of Michael J. Fox. Parkinson’s disease currently has no cure, and there are few available treatments to improve symptoms or condition.  What [Read More]

New Research Paves Way for Parkinson’s Cure

Stem cell researchers at the Jacobs School of Medicine at the University of Buffalo have reproduced the brain oscillations seen in Parkinson’s disease in a petri dish in the laboratory. This new research will pave the way for new therapies and maybe even a potential cure for Parkinson’s. The findings were published in the online [Read More]

Cell Culture Studies for Parkinson’s Treatment

Research teams at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the University of Bergen in Norway have collaborated to study a thousand different drugs and their effect on the risk of Parkinson’s disease. New Research on Parkinson’s Treatments The findings of a study authored by Harvard University’s Shuchi Mittal were published in the journal Science. The [Read More]

Treating Parkinson’s Disease

Scientists Reprogram Brain Cells to Treat Parkinson’s Scientists in Europe have developed a new method of reprogramming brain cells to treat Parkinson’s disease. The experiments were conducted in mice to see if some of the movement disorders that characterize Parkinson’s could be corrected. Parkinson’s Disease: An Overview Parkinson’s disease is the result of neurons (brain [Read More]

Stem Cells and the War on Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a devastating disease that slowly eats away at the central nervous system. What may begin as a subtle hand tremor can grow over the years into an uncontrollable and life-altering problem. It’s a condition that has been known since ancient times as “shaking palsy,” but it wasn’t officially detailed until London doctor [Read More]

New Hope for Parkinson’s Patients

More people in America have Parkinson’s disease than muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, and Lou Gehrig’s disease combined. Approximately 60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year, but many more go undetected. Worldwide, it is predicted that 7 to 10 million people are living with Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is more common in men and its incidence increases with [Read More]
