Patient-Derived Neurons Show Promise as Model for Parkinson’s Research, Study Finds

Stem cell-derived neurons from patients with familial forms of Parkinson’s may be used as a valuable model to screen and develop novel therapies for this disease, according to a study. The study, “T-type Calcium Channels Determine the Vulnerability of Dopaminergic Neurons to Mitochondrial Stress in Familial Parkinson Disease” was published in Stem Cell Reports. While … Continue reading Patient-Derived Neurons Show Promise as Model for Parkinson’s Research, Study Finds
