Transplantation of Human Neural Cells for Treatment of Neurodegenerative Conditions

Tech ID: 19411 / UC Case 2008-210-0

Technology Description

Neural stem cells may be implanted at a region remote from neuron degeneration. This invention teaches a method of treating neurodegenerative disorders arising from the lack of cells that produce particular neurotransmitters in neural circuitry by transplanting exogenously cultured and expanded neural progenitors which, upon tranplantation into a neural tissue, differentiate into neurons capable of integrating and producing neurotransmitters to overcome the symptoms associated with the neurodegeneration.
