Comparison of the therapeutic potential of adult and embryonic neural precursor cells in a rat model of Parkinson disease.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The therapeutic effects of adult and embryonic neural precursor cells (NPCs) were evaluated and their therapeutic potential compared in a rat model of Parkinson disease. METHODS Adult NPCs were obtained from the subventricular zone and embryonic NPCs were taken from the ganglionic eminence of 14-day-old embryos. Each NPC type was cultured with… (More)
