    People suffering from this terrible disease might not have to wait too long for a cure. American scientists at Yale University in May 2010 treated mice with similar conditions to Parkinsons with the stem cells taken from the lining of womens uterus and planted into the mice's brain.All the mice recovered rapidly and scientists are now hoping to trial this on patients.

      Parkinson's is a cruel disease.  Here's hoping a cure comes along very soon.

    Hi, my dad had this disease, and it was horrible seeing him shuffle about, especially not being able to see him smile as his facial muscles would not work, sadly it is too late for my dad, but hopefully it will work for the thousands of people who have it.
