Abstract: Publication date: Available online 2 December 2016 Source:Current Research in Translational Medicine Author(s): A. Gugliandolo, P. Bramanti, E. Mazzon Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, and as a consequence, by decreased dopamine levels in the striatum. Currently available therapies are not able to stop or reverse the progression of the disease. A novel therapeutic approach is based on cell therapy with stem cells, in order to replace degenerated neurons. Among stem cells, mesenchymal... Read More
