|A new gene therapy for Parkinson's disease has achieved|
promising results in its first human tests, involving 15 patients.
The treatment, called ProSavin, uses a modified virus to deliver three genes into the brain which go to work teaching other cells to produce what's missing... COOL EH?
My Parkinson's is caused by a loss of nerve cells in the part of my brain called the substantia nigra. Symptoms only become severe when 80 per cent of the nerve cells in my substantia nigra have been lost. (so, if you find any laying around... pick em up, they're probably mine!)
I just now sent an email, requesting to participate in their next trial... probably a long shot... we'll see.
This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. ~ ISAIAH 48:17
