Lumbar Intraspinal Injection of Neural Stem Cells in Patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: Results of a Phase I Trial in 12 Patients
Advances in stem cell biology have generated intense interest in the prospect of transplanting stem cells into the nervous system for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Here, we report theExpand

Gene therapy for neurodegenerative diseases.
Gene therapy is, potentially, a powerful tool for treating neurodegenerative diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), spinal muscular atrophy, Parkinson's disease (PD) and Alzheimer'sExpand

Gene delivery of neurturin to putamen and substantia nigra in Parkinson disease: A double‐blind, randomized, controlled trial
A 12‐month double‐blind sham‐surgery–controlled trial assessing adeno‐associated virus type 2 (AAV2)‐neurturin injected into the putamen bilaterally failed to meet its primary endpoint, but showedExpand

The S cell: an interneuron essential for sensitization and full dishabituation of leech shortening
Sensory neurons in the leech excite the S interneuron, which in turn excites motoneurons that shorten the leech, although activity in the S cell reportedly cannot by itself shorten the animal.Expand

Robust spinal motor neuron transduction following intrathecal delivery of AAV9 in pigs
Adeno-associated viral vector 9 (AAV9) has recently been shown to penetrate the blood–brain barrier via intravascular administration, making it a good candidate for diffuse gene delivery. However,Expand
