New stem cell therapy could be used to halt Huntington’s advance | "Latest Stem Cells News"

Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

The authors, a team of researchers at the UC Davis Institute for Regenerative Cures,  claim that for the first time, they have been able to successfully deliver inhibitory RNA sequences from stem cells into neurons, significantly decreasing the synthesis of the abnormal huntingtin protein.
