Neural stem cells successfully implanted into the brains of 4 boys
from Los Angeles Times
Scientists have performed the first successful neural stem cell transplant into the brains of four boys with Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease. The disorder is a rare but tragic condition that impacts motor abilities, coordination and cognitive function. Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease does its damage by stripping away the fatty substance called myelin that surrounds brain cells.
