What were we asked?

We were asked whether there were any stem cell trials for children with cerebral palsy taking place in the UK.

 

Key findings

  • Stem Cell Treatment uses stem cells to replace or repair damaged cells or tissues.
  • We are only in the early stages of understanding how and whether stem cell treatment might benefit children with cerebral palsy.
