Abstract

Cell replacement therapy is becoming an alternative approach for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Nevertheless, this approach is limited by the availability of donor tissue and by ethical constraints. Cell culture techniques could provide an unlimited source of cells for transplantation.
