Safety and Efficacy Study of Human ESC-derived Neural Precursor Cells in the Treatment of Parkinson's Disease

General Information

Summary This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of intracerebral transplantation of human embryonic stem cells-derived neural precursor cells in patients with Parkinson's Disease.
Description This study is a Phase I/II, open-label, non randomized clinical trial. The study will enroll 50 patients for cell injection, administering a single dose of neural precursor cells by stereotaxic intra-striatal injection.
Clinical trials phase Phases 1/2
Start date (estimated) 2017-05-01
End date (estimated) 2020-12-31
Clinical feature
Label Parkinson's Disease
Description A progressive degenerative disorder of the central nervous system characterized by loss of dopamine producing neurons in the substantia nigra and the presence of Lewy bodies in the substantia nigra and locus coeruleus. Signs and symptoms include tremor which is most pronounced during rest, muscle rigidity, slowing of the voluntary movements, a tendency to fall back, and a mask-like facial expression.
