A Secret Experiment Revealed: In a Medical First, Doctors
Treat Parkinson’s with a Novel Brain Cell Transplant

(STAT
News
) – It was after midnight on a late summer night in 2017,
and they had less than eight hours to get the cells by ambulance,
private plane, and another ambulance from Dana-Farber Cancer
Institute in Boston to Weill Cornell Medical Center in Manhattan.
If it took longer, the cells would almost certainly be DOA, and so
might the researchers’ plan to carry out an experimental
transplant surgery unprecedented in the annals of medicine:
replacing the dysfunctional brain cells of a Parkinson’s disease
patient with the progeny of an extraordinary type of stem cell.
Created in the lab from a patch of the patient’s own skin, these
cells, it was hoped, would settle into the brain like they belonged
there and permanently restore the patient’s ability to walk and
move normally.
