Transfer of "induced stem cells" into a patient's brain in a previous one

TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese researchers said they were able to transfer stem cells called "induced stem cells" into the Parkinson's brain for the first time in the history of medicine.
Researchers at Kyoto University were able to inject from two to 400,000 of these cells capable of generating any type of cells, in the left part of the brain, in a three-hour operation.
This operation was conducted last month.
The patient is 50 years old and will remain under surveillance for two years, according to a statement from the University.
These cells were taken from healthy donors and are reliable for the development of dopamine-producing nerves responsible for motion control.
The University of Kyoto announced in July that it would conduct the experiment with seven participants aged between 50 and 69 years.
Parkinson's disease affects 10 million people worldwide, causing deterioration of nerve function and symptoms such as fluctuations and stiffness in some organs.
