Default Some good news? Stem (iPS) cells

‘Reprogrammed’ stem cells implanted into patient with Parkinson’s disease

Japanese neurosurgeons have implanted ‘reprogrammed’ stem cells into the brain of a patient with Parkinson’s disease for the first time.The condition is only the second for which a therapy has been trialled using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, which are developed by reprogramming the cells of body tissues such as skin so that they revert to an embryonic-like state, from which they can morph into other cell types.

Note that the operation described in the article was performed in October last year. Hopefully the trial will issue another update fairly soon.
