Is This Stem Cell Research Considered Promising?

Is This Stem Cell Research Considered Promising?

Surgeons implanted 2.5million stemcells that had been grown into dopamine transporting brain cells, into a human two years ago. He's still doing well, much improved with no side effects. It's a while off before it's available. But seems exciting to me as very potentially a cure or big improver.

I don't see much talk about this on websites. Why is that? Is there something not good about it?

I've been on C/L 25/100 for about 25 yrs. I haven't had that many problems with it. I do get dyskinesia, when I take to much. I'm on two other medicines now since June of this year. Neupro patches is the first one its a 24hr patch the releases a steady stream of medicine. It helps with highs and lows of oral medicine. The second one is Kynmobi sublingual strips this medicine you put under your tongue it help to cut your off time down to 15 to 30 minutes.

@ RSAgen - thank you for the information and concern. I have been on an MAO inhibitor for several years now and have had no issue. I have to watch what I eat but other than that all is good. The good and evils of meds......side effects are always a balancing act.

My note just disappeared again, how annoying! It was to megMS. Be careful of the MAO inhibitors, they can be dangerous if taken with certain meds. I have been on the Levodopa for a year or so and I get very uncomfortable if I take it late or miss a dose. So you will be tied to it if you start. But you’ll be uncomfortable if you don’t take it too…talk it over with your health team, the pros and cons.
