The innovation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and previous embryonic stem cell (ESC) technologies are drawing attention to their application for regenerative medicine. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most promising target diseases based on the history of fetal nigral transplantation in clinics. The technology of iPSCs offers a limitless and more advantageous donor source than aborted tissue. One of the advantages is possibility of preparing immunologically compatible donor cells from self-derived or allogeneic iPSCs. We have successfully established a protocol for donor induction with clinically compatible grade and have transplanted these neurons into PD models of mice, rats, and cynomolgus monkeys as preclinical studies. Based on these research results, the clinical trial of cell therapy for PD with iPS cells started since 2018. The presentation will include the recent research results and the proceedings of the clinical trial.
