The FDA and an ALS Treatment

Few diseases are as ferociously debilitating as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). But a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee this week gave patients a glimmer of hope by endorsing a new treatment that may slow their decline and provide valuable more time to live.

ALS or Lou Gehrigdisease, is a neurodegenerative disease that gradually deprives people of their ability to function. It affects approximately 30,000 patients in the US with 5,000 new cases each year. Patients typically live only two years after diagnosis because they lose their ability to control key muscle movements and eventually chew and breathe.
