Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases are progressive neurodegenerative disorders of the central nervous system for which symptomatic but not curative therapies are available. Therapeutic strategies have been developed to try and repair the brain in these conditions, including the use of grafts of foetal neural tissue. Here, we consider the merits of this approach and discuss the extent to which neural transplantation has successfully been translated into clinical studies for these diseases.
