(Colonies of induced pluripotent stem cells)
Over 1 million Americans struggle with Parkinson's disease (PD) and approximately 60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year.
By the time of diagnosis, over 50% of the neurons that make dopamine have already been lost. Earlier detection is not currently possible and no FDA-approved therapy exists to replace or stop further loss of dopamine-producing neurons once a diagnosis is made.
More people have Parkinson's disease than multiple sclerosis (MS), Lou Gehrig's (amyotrophic lateral schlerosis, ALS) and muscular dystrophy (MD) - combined.
Over 6 million Americans live with a neurodegenerative disorder. If left unchecked 30 years from now, it is estimated that more than 12 million Americans will be affected.
is to support, educate and raise awareness about the development of today's and tomorrow's evidence-based regenerative medical therapies focused on Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. It is our goal to empower patients and caregivers with information to elevate their understanding in order to manage their healthcare.
to join us as we work towards a Victory Over Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative disorders for a future where evidence-based FDA approved stem cell therapies (regenerative medical therapies) are a reality in mainstream healthcare as a viable option for all....
We invite you
Summit supports the field of regenerative medicine that, we believe, is the best option to thoroughly integrate and address the needs of the human nervous system.
Any regenerative medical research we support MUST be science-based and evidence-based. We only support work either with FDA-approval or working towards FDA-approval.
Summit is working diligently for the benefit of persons struggling with Parkinson's disease and/or other neurodegenerative disorders and their caregivers around the globe.
