It is manufactured by Oxford BioMedica, who plan to start European Phase I and Phase II clinical trials in 2007. Animal trials have been a success, with dopamine levels restored without the side effects associated with other current treatments for Parkinson's.

Prosavin uses Oxford BioMedica's Lentivector delivery system to transfer three genes, aromatic amino acid dopa decarboxylase, tyrosine hydroxylase and GTP-cyclohydrolase 1, to the striatum in the brain, reprogramming transduced cells to secrete dopamine.
