‘Designer’ neurons could be a lifesaver for Parkinson’s disease Nature.

A new study has shown that engineered cells are able to eliminate the symptoms of the disease. They produce dopamine and damaged neurons, and thus restore the abilities lost by patients.

We are talking about stem cells, “functionally indistinguishable from embryonic stem cells.” They actively spread and migrate to different parts of the body, forming nerves and other types of cells.

It is noted that stem cell replacement therapy will become a “radical new” strategy for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. It will be used in the world’s first clinical trial in patients with Parkinson’s disease, which affects more than 10 million people worldwide.

Earlier it became known that against the backdrop of Western sanctions due to a special operation in Ukraine in Russia, there was a shortage of vital drugs with levodopa – they are needed daily by many patients with Parkinson’s disease.
