Stem cells have been delivered intranasally (via the nose), as a means of trying to treat Parkinson's Disease. Intranasal administration of stem cells to the brain is a proposed alternative to the current surgical procedures, which place stem cells directly in to the brain. Instead of one surgical operation, the ease of intranasal administration opens up the possibility of chronic stem cell treatment, which would increase the number of cells delivered to the brain. Many of the stem cells delivered intranasally survived for at least six months in the brain. The stem cells rapidly migrated to the damaged areas. It is claimed that the method substantially improved motor function in Parkinson's Disease. However, the study was only carried out on rats that did not actually have Parkinson's Disease. For years it had been claimed that stem cell therapy would be able to rid Parkinson's Disease. However, despite stem cell operations now having been carried out around the world, nobody has ever been rid of Parkinson's Disease using stem cell therapy.
