The mature brain is infamously bad at repairing itself following damage like that caused by trauma or strokes, or from degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s. Stem cells, which are endlessly adaptable, have offered the promise of better neural repair. But the brain’s precisely tuned complexity has stymied the development of clinical treatments.
Stem Cell Study Finds Malfunctioning Brain Cells in Patients Who Were Diagnosed Before Age 50; Researchers Test Potential New Treatment
A UiB-study shows that the taking of diabetes medicine reduces the risk of getting Parkinson´s disease.
A new kind of antibody targets a feature shared by proteins thought to cause the most damage in Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and related conditions, creating potential for a unified treatment approach.
