"Forty patients will be involved in phase two, which is taking place at centres across the UK. The North East's only centre, which opened a month ago, is based in Newcastle. The second part of the trial will also involve a single injection of stem cells into a stroke patient's brain. This is done under anaesthetic and most patients stay in hospital for one to 2 days after treatment."
