There are some studies going on about using stem cells to regenerate
cells lacking in certain diseases.  A study was just released about a
week ago about using stem cells in a person with Parkinson's.

I think the "extent" of the damage varies from person to person.  I
went 10 minutes without oxygen to my brain and I'm doing pretty good.

Hope this helps. :-)
