Good news. Some more insight into Summit for Stem Cell PD therapy. Yesterday’s San Diego Union-Tribune featured this timely article “Aspen Neuroscience gets funding to pursue personalized cell therapy for Parkinson’s…[Read more]
Good observations. An important aspect of this therapy is that no stem cells are injected into patients. Instead, stem cells are a step in the pathway to obtain dopamine-producing neurons. These neurons are then transplanted into the patient. My understanding is these neurons are injected into the brain. Per Summit’s literature, the new dopamine…[Read more]
Thanks for the relevant stem cell article links, Jean.
A scientific stem cell therapy trial is being carried out utilizing autologous (meaning cells obtained from the same individual) dopamine neuron replacement therapy at Aspen Neurosciene, Inc. labs of Summit for Stem Cell https://www.summitforstemcell.org in La Jolla, CA
Their approach…[Read more]
