Scientists led by Dr Tilo Kunath (MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine) have taken a key step towards improving an emerging class of treatments for Parkinson’s disease. The advance could improve a next generation of therapies for the condition, which affects around one in 350 people in the UK.
Professor Sir Ian Wilmut (The Roslin Institute), lead scientist in the project that created Dolly the Sheep, has announced, on World Parkinson's Disease Day, that he is backing a major new Parkinsons's disease research programme between Dundee and Edinburgh after being diagnosed with the condition.
Dr. Thomas Becker (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) and colleagues investigating Parkinson’s have found that zebrafish are able to use specialised brain stem cells to replace lost or destroyed dopamine-producing nerve cells, a process which appears to involve activation of the immune system.
A team of researchers at the University of Edinburgh's Medical Research Council Centre for Regenerative Medicine (MRC CRM) have made a key discovery that could speed up the production of cells in the lab for studying diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. It is possible that it could also help to boost supplies of cells for use in drug discovery research and could eventually aid production of cells for use as therapies.
Dr Tilo Kunath (MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine) has worked with colleagues at the University of Manchester and Joy Milne, someone who can smell Parkinson’s, to identify molecules on the skin that change in people with the condition.
