This time for Parkinson's Disease. I really think that stem cell therapy's beginning to take off in a big way now. :cool2: Let's hope that all the research proves positive.

a few times I was sure I was headed that way as I had trouble picking up small objects and fingers would start shaking out of control. it seems to have been a meds side effect as it's been gone for a long time.

hm... could they not use rat brain matter to inject... ? :shifty: in some cases I doubt there'd be a difference...

:lol:

It's basically that trials've been done on rats brains, by injecting human cells into them. The results pave the way for finding treatments. The stem cells from a rat's brain might work on a human - but the side effect might be in having to put up with huge incisors! :lol:

That's a point. I was thinking of a rat - no offence to the wee one.
