What is neural graft

Any of several procedures in which cells, usually dopaminergic, are transplanted to the brain of a person with Parkinson’s disease. The intent is for these cells to take root and begin to reproduce, replacing the dopaminergic neurons that have died. At present, neural grafts are experimental and have produced inconsistent results. Graft sources include human fetal dopaminergic cells, fetal porcine brain cells, human stem cells, and autograft using adrenal medullary tissue.
