NEW YORK, Dec 14 (Reuters Health) -- A transplant of brain cells from a pig fetus into the brain of a man with life-long, untreatable seizures reduced the number of the patient's seizures by 40%, report Harvard researchers.
The fetal pig nerve cells produce a neurochemical called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), "a natural fire extinguisher for seizures," said Dr. Steven C. Schachter, of Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
Schachter said that he has performed fetal brain cell transplants in two more patients, one of whom is now seizure-free.
