Abstract

In animal models, immature neural precursors can replace lost neurons, restore function and promote brain self-repair. Clinical trials in Parkinson's disease suggest that similar approaches may also work in the diseased human brain. But how realistic is it that cell replacement can be developed into effective clinical therapy?
