Huntington's disease (HD) results from degeneration of striatal neurons. Choroid plexus (CP) cells secrete neurotrophic factors, and CP transplants are neuroprotective in rat models of HD. To determine if similar neuroprotective effects could be obtained in primates, porcine CP was encapsulated in alginate capsules. PCR confirmed that the CP cells expressed(More)

The mechanism for these increases is not known, but evidence suggests that simple accumulation due to decreased elimination is insufficient explanation. METHODS We studied(More)
