Stem Cells and Parkinson's Disease: Finding a Cure

Stem Cells and Parkinson's Disease: Finding a CureParkinson's disease (PD) is a degenerative brain condition that leads to a dramatic loss in a person's quality of life. According to the Parkinson's Foundation, there are an estimated one million Americans suffering with Parkinson's disease today, and another 60,000 people are diagnosed with it every year. Worldwide, the disease afflicts an estimated 10 million people. Symptoms of Parkinson's range from stiffness in the muscles and joints to uncontrollable shaking, eventually including difficulty or even the inability to walk and talk normally. While there are treatment methods, including medications and therapeutic surgery that can alleviate some symptoms, there is currently no cure for Parkinson's disease. Stem cell research holds great promise, though.
