"Using adult neural stem cells, Dr. Michel Levesque, at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, reports a total reversal of symptoms in the first Parkinson’s patient treated. The patient, a 57-year old former fighter pilot, is still without symptoms three years after the adult neural stem cells were removed from his brain, coaxed into becoming dopamine-producing cells, and then reimplanted. Because the stem cells came from the patient, there was no need for immunosuppression to overcome rejection. "I think transplantation of the patient's own neural stem cells and differentiated dopaminergic neurons is more biologically and physiologically compatible - more efficacious and more elegant," said Levesque. In addition to its use for Parkinson’s, the technique is under study for juvenile diabetes, stroke, brain tumors, spinal cord injury, and other conditions."
Results presented April 8th 2002, at the meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons.
