Bangalore: Stem cell research holds out hope for people with Parkinson’s disease but studies are in the experimental stages and need time to be standardised, experts said here on Saturday.
Uday Muthane, neurophysician at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS), said that National Centre for Biological Sciences and NIMHANS were doing a behavioural study in animals to see the effect of embryonic stem cells in Parkinson’s disease.
“There have been advances in the medical management of the disease and around 150 drugs are in the pipeline,” Dr. Muthane said.
