Pilot patients are pioneers of a new therapy against Parkinson's disease
This two-part television program describes the Summit4StemCell project and allows two of the pilot patients describe how they will be the first to have dopamine neurons grown from their own skin cells implanted (currently planned for 2019).
All indications are that this will largely alleviate or even clear the Parkinson’s symptoms meaning that drugs (and their side-effects) will not be needed anymore (analogous to these results).
The contributions, lasting about 5 minutes each, follow each other directly (some passages are the same but it is still worth watching both parts):ABC 10News
