Nasally Delivered Stem Cell Treatment for Parkinson’s Improves Motor Control-Study From Germany

Posted Mar 13 2011 1:27am

The stem cells survived for 6 months or more in the brain and motor control image improved.  This was based on a rat model.  What was also interesting too is that just this week in an European court was the decision that stem cells cannot be patented as a result of this study.  You can read more about the legal decision here.  BD 

Stem cells, delivered intranasally, have been found to substantially improve motor function in Parkinson’s disease in a study conducted by the US Alzheimer’s Research Center and the University Hospital of Tubingen in Germany.

The team had previously published a paper and filed for a patent on this intranasal stem cell delivery method and went on to study the therapeutic impact and long-term survival of the stem cells after they reached the brain. Their new study was published in Rejuvenation Research.
