Treating Huntington’s disease: making new neurons is not enough


Many researchers and clinicians believe that stem cells will one day be used in regenerative medicines to treat many injuries and diseases, including Huntington’s disease (HD). Researchers think that nerve cells that die in HD patients may be able to be replaced with new healthy neurons made from stem cells. Scientists are already able to use stem cells to create nerve cells similar to those lost by HD patients.
