Cell transplantation for patients with Parkinson's disease.

This chapter focuses on cell replacement therapies in Parkinson's disease (PD) and describes experimental data leading to clinical trials, as well as the methodology and efficacy of grafts of human embryonic nigral tissue in patients with PD. It also highlights some of the clinical problems the procedure presents and considers future alternative sources of donor tissue, including various forms of stem cells.
