Stem Cell Savior

Compound shelters neuron precursors during Parkinson's disease treatment

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Stem cells are like the first players picked in the NBA draft--everyone expects wonders from them. A new study reveals a compound that might help stem cells live up to their promise in treating Parkinson's disease (PD). By reducing damage inflicted by a traditional PD treatment, the drug might allow patients to benefit from the standard therapy and stem cells.
