Cell cultures for Parkinson's disease research have the advantage of virtually unlimited access, they allow rapid screening for disease pathogenesis and drug candidates, and they restrict the necessary number of animal experiments. Limitations of cell cultures, include that the survival of neurons is dependent upon the culture conditions; that the cells do… CONTINUE READING
