Clinical Neurosciences Center, , als, lou gehrig's disease

90 to 95 percent of ALS cases are “sporadic”, meaning these patients had no clear family history of the condition, and therefore no indication that they were at risk. A new study by investigators at University of Utah health shows that approximately one-fifth of these cases do have signs of a genetic predisposition toward the disease: these patients carry detrimental mutations associated with the familial form of ALS....

Treatment Reverses Signs of Two Degenerative Brain Diseases, ALS and Ataxia, in Mice

Clinical Neurosciences Center, , als, ataxia

Scientists report a significant step toward combatting two degenerative brain diseases that chip away at an individual’s ability to move, and think. A targeted therapy developed by scientists at University of Utah Health slows the progression of a condition in mice that mimics a rare disease called ataxia. In a parallel collaborative study, led by researchers at Stanford University, a nearly identical treatment improves the health of mice that model Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly called Lou Gehrig’s disease. ...
