Dr. Theodore Schwartz Publishes Results of Promising Epilepsy Research

Nearly a third of all epilepsy patients do not respond to conventional drug treatments, and only a fraction of those are candidates for surgical solutions. New research published in the journal Neurotherapeutics holds promise for an alternative approach. Dr. Theodore Schwartz of the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center collaborated with Dr. Stewart Anderson from the Department of Psychiatry in a newly released study that shows how brain cell transplants stopped seizures in a rat model.
