Stem Cell Researchers Moving Closer to a Cure for Parkinson’s

In Scotland, scientists have been working on turning embryonic stem cells into a specific cell type not found in individuals suffering from Parkinson’s disease. More specifically, researchers strive to coax early-stage embryonic stem cells to form particular neural cells that can eventually be transplanted into Parkinson’s patients. While further studies are needed to confirm these processes, doctors are incredibly optimistic about the potential of stem cells to find a cure for a disease that affects over 120,000 in the United Kingdom.
