Human Study of Parkinson's Gene Therapy Commences

(From Betterhumans). As I have mentioned before, effective therapies for curing and preventing neurodegenerative diseases are a must for long term healthy life extension: the brain is the only part of the body that can't just be replaced when medical technology allows organs to be grown to order. Interestingly, this potential Parkinson's therapy builds on research on GABA that only made the press a few months ago; the medical research process seems at times to be speeding up (at least when it is not being legislated to a standstill).
