After nine months, there was no change in the scans of patients who received a placebo, but those who got GDNF showed major changes in a key area of the brain affected by the disease.
A further 35 people then participated in the nine-month double blind trial, where half were randomly assigned to receive monthly infusions of GDNF and the other half placebo infusions.

In addition, DPSCs could be differentiated into spiral ganglion neuron-like cells by treating with BDNF, NT-3, and GDNF [74].
Despite this, we showed that the expression especially of NGF, NGFR, NTRK1, GFRA1, GFAP, and GDNF was upregulated in patients with severe neuropathy as compared to healthy subjects and diabetic patients with subclinical neuropathy.
Morning fasting venous blood samples were collected to measure MMP-1 (matrix metalloproteinase-1), MMP-2 (matrix metalloproteinase-2), TIMP-1 (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-1), MMP-9 (matrix metallopeptidase-9), BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), GDNF (glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor), and VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor).
On day 11, the medium was changed to Neurobasal/B27/GlutaMAX[TM] supplemented with CHIR99021, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF; 20 ng/ml, R&D Systems), ascorbic acid (AA; 0.2 mM, SigmaAldrich), dibutyryl cAMP (cAMP; 0.5 mM, Sigma-Aldrich), transforming growth factor type [beta]3 (TGF[beta]3; 1 ng/ml, R&D Systems), glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF; 20 ng/ml, R&D Systems), and DAPT (10 nM, Tocris Bioscience).
The corneal sensitivity, number of corneal nerve fibers, and contents of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-B and various neurotrophic factors such as nerve growth factor (NGF) and glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) in corneal tissue of four groups were observed.
