Real-time, observable MRI delivery updated to improve stem cell therapy for Parkinson's

(Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair) Using real-time intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (RT-IMRI) to guide transplantation of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived neurons (stem cells generated directly from adult cells) into the brains of non-human primates modeled with Parkinson's disease, researchers found that RT-IMRI guidance allows for better visualization and monitoring of the procedure, helps cell survival, can prevent clogging during cell delivery, and also prevents exposure to air during the procedure, all adding to the procedure's efficacy and safety.
