Squalamine shows promise as potential treatment for Parkinson’s disease in lab studies

A naturally-occurring compound has been found to block a molecular process thought to underlie Parkinson’s Disease and to suppress its toxic products, scientists have reported. The findings, although only preliminary, suggest that the compound, called squalamine, could be exploited in various ways as the basis of a potential treatment for Parkinson’s Disease.

Parkinson disease treatment break through – using stem cells to develop dopaminergic neurons.

The first transplantation of stem cells in patients with Parkinson’s disease is almost within reach. However, it remains a challenge for researchers to control stem cells accurately in the lab in order to achieve successful and functional stem cell therapies for patients. “In our preclinical assessments of stem cell-derived dopamine neurons we noticed that the …
