Swedish scientists propose to treat Parkinson's disease with stem cells

Researchers from Lund University (Sweden) has grown from human stem cells, the neurons are able to synthesize dopamine. Experiment on laboratory animals was successful.

Transplantation of neurons allowed to restore normal motor activity for the worms and rats. Scientists suggest that the transplant will give similar results and those of other animals.

Scientists have transplanted rats with symptoms of Parkinson's disease human neurons grown in laboratory conditions. Some time later, the cells were embedded in the brain, and motor activity was restored.
