Stem cell breakthrough for Parkinson’s disease

Researchers at the University of Melbourne have made a breakthrough in the use of stem cells to treat Parkinson’s disease.

Stem cells can be used to allow the body to produce dopamine, which prevents Parkinson’s.

Until now, treatment has been too risky because some of the stem cells can become carcinogenic.
