Stem Cells in Treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, or simply ALS, is a neurodegenerative disease that slowly kills its victims within a few years after diagnosis. This is a complex disease in which every motor neuron in the body is killed over a relatively short time period - within 3 years or so, thus killing the victim. This disease can be classified into three main categories based on the neurological levels affected - bulbar onset, cervical onset, and lumbar onset (Mitchell and Borasio). Bulbar onset can further be divided into two subcategories - upper motor neuron (UMN) bulbar onset, and lower motor neuron (LMN) bulbar onset.
