A Treatment for ALS? Neural Stem Cell Transplants Slow Progression of Disease, Harvard Medical School Study
Published: Jan 03, 2013
Results from a meta-analysis of 11 independent amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research studies are giving hope to the ALS community by showing, for the first time, that the fatal disease may be treatable. Researchers say progress in treating ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, may be made by targeting new mechanisms revealed by neural stem cell-based studies.
