Stem cells have inspired numerous researches in medical science field during the last 30 years. These cells are known to bring about remarkable cures in various diseases. Now scientists have found that these cells can offer treatment and perhaps even cure to various ailments ranging from baldness to spinal cord injury.
Though progress in research on stem cells has come up at a slow pace, researchers have now found that these could well offer cure for patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease. The same research was conducted in Sweden and the findings have been tried on rats so far.
The research was led by Malin Parmar and the researchers are so encouraged with their findings that they believe that human trials could soon be carried out in coming years. The research was conducted at Lund University, a premier institute in Sweden.
Reportedly, Parkinson disease is a serious medical condition and affects 7 to 10 million people worldwide. Parkinson disease is a degenerative condition of central nervous system and many famous personalities have suffered from the same.
These include actor Michael J Fox and Google co-founder Sergey Brin. These two personalities despite suffering from Parkinson disease not only raised awareness on the issue but also raised millions of dollars for the cause.
The scientists observed that the research was carried out rigorously; some other critical questions need to be answered prior to the treatment being carried out in humans. Parkinson is a serious medical condition and with some hope arising, things could get better for the people suffering from it.
