least a year-and-a-half police said Friday The boy was discovered by police in the city of London Ontario after authorities acted on a tip Upon investigation police said they believe the child was kept locked in the room for between a-year-and-a-half to two years "The master bedroom had an ensuite bathroom so the child had access to a toilet and shower however the room and the entire house was in squalid condition" a police statement said The 10-year-old was diagnosed as being underweight and malnourished and turned over to the care of the Childrens Aid Society The boys guardians his aunt

editors@timecomJun Takahashi (left) and colleagues explained their plans for a trial in Parkinson’s disease patients at a press conference at Kyoto University in Japan today The Yomiuri Shimbun/AP Images First-of-its-kind clinical trial will use reprogrammed adult stem cells to treat Parkinson’s By Dennis NormileJul 30 2018 3:35 PM Researchers in Japan today announced the launch of a clinical trial to treat Parkinson’s disease with neurological material derived from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells mature cells chemically manipulated to return to an early stage of development from which they can theoretically differentiate into any of the body’s specialized cells The study team will inject dopaminergic progenitors a cell type that develops into neurons that produce dopamine directly into a region of the brain known to play a key role in the neural degeneration associated with Parkinson’s disease The effort is being led by Jun Takahashi a neurosurgeon at Kyoto University’s Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA) in cooperation with Kyoto University Hospital Parkinson’s disease results from the death of specialized cells in the brain that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine A lack of dopamine leads to a decline in motor skills resulting in difficulty walking and involuntary trembling As the disease progresses it can lead to dementia The trial strategy is to derive dopaminergic progenitors from iPS cells and inject them into the putamen a round structure located at the base of the forebrain Surgeons will drill two small holes through a patient’s skull and use a specialized device to inject roughly 5 million cells Studies in animals have shown that the progenitors differentiate into dopaminergic neurons inside the body and engraft into the brain Takahashi’s group reported last year that monkey models of Parkinson’s disease showed significant improvement lasting 2 years after getting injections of neurons prepared from human iPS cells Rather than make patient-specific iPS cells CiRA has adopted the strategy of deriving stocks of iPS cells from healthy donors with specific cell types that are less likely to cause immune rejection “Using stocks of cells we can proceed much more quickly and cost-effectively” CiRA Director Shinya Yamanaka who won a share of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2012 for discovering how to create iPS cells told Science in 2017 As an added precaution the patients will receive a common immunosuppressant in tandem with the progenitors Patient recruitment started today at 5 pm local time when Kyoto University Hospital posted the patient recruitment notice on its website The team plans to recruit seven patients and follow them for 2 years postinjection This is the third human trial using iPS cells approved in Japan The first using retinal cells derived from iPS cells to replace eye tissue damaged by age-related macular degeneration (AMD) was launched in 2014 and is being led by Masayo Takahashi—Jun Takahashi’s wife—of the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe The AMD treatment was initially reported to be safe though there has been one reported adverse event Earlier this year a team at Osaka University in Japan won conditional approval for an iPS cell–based study for ischemic heart disease LIMA (Reuters) – A Peruvian judge on Monday ordered the arrests of two men accused of lynching of a Canadian man last week in a remote Amazonian village as retribution The Canadian 41-year-old Sebastian Woodroffe had been accused by villagers of murdering an indigenous medicine woman in the region of Ucayali and was killed in revenge by a "mob" according to Peru’s interior ministry A minute-and-a-half long cellphone recording of the lynching which was posted on Facebook showed two men dragging Woodroffe by a noose around his neck as others looked on His body was later found buried nearby Prosecutors have identified the two men and are working to determine who else took part in the lynching according to the judicial ruling that ordered their arrests But less is known about the slaying of Olivia Arevalo 81 a revered shaman of the Shipibo-Conibo tribe who was shot dead near her home on Thursday Ricardo Jimenez the head of a group of prosecutors in Ucayali said no one witnessed Arevalo’s shooting the murder weapon has not been found and a test for gunshot residue on Woodroffe’s body will likely take 15 to 20 days Woodroffe had been Arevalo’s patient and her family believes he killed her because she refused to conduct a ritual in which the hallucinogenic Amazonian plant brew ayahuasca is used for healing and spiritual growth said Jimenez But authorities are exploring several hypotheses related to Arevalo’s murder including one in which another foreigner might have killed her over an unpaid debt Jimenez said Arevalo’s slaying prompted outrage as it followed the unsolved killings of other indigenous people in the Amazon region who had faced threats for trying to protect their land Policing is scant over much of the Peruvian Andes and Amazon and villagers in far-flung provinces often punish accused criminals according to local customs Woodroffe moved to Ucayali after raising funds to help him learn more about plant medicine in Peru to become an addictions counsellor according to the crowdfunding website Indiegogocom in which he listed his plan to spend C$6800 ($5294) at a Shipibo healing centre Ayahuasca has long been used by tribes in spiritual rituals and has fuelled a surge in Amazonian tourism in the past decade as its reputation for helping overcome addiction and trauma and providing spiritual insights has grown abroad Neither Woodroffe’s nor Arevalo’s family could be reached for comment Canada’s foreign affairs department said it was in touch with Peruvian officials "We are aware of this case and actively seeking further information" Global Affairs Canada said in a statement (Reporting by Mitra Taj
