Encapsulated PC12 cell transplants into hemiparkinsonian monkeys: a behavioral, neuroanatomical, and neurochemical analysis.

Abstract

Four cynomolgus monkeys were trained on a hand reaching task and then rendered hemiparkinsonian with an intracarotid injection of n-methyl 4 phenyl 1,2,3,6, tetrahydropyridine (MPTP). Performance on this task with the limb contralateral to the MPTP injection was significantly impaired following the lesion. Three monkeys received implants of polymer… (More)
