Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is more commonly known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Lou Gehrig was a famous American baseball player stricken with the disease in the early 1940s. The disease causes progressive damage to the neuromuscular system, causing muscle weakness, limited mobility, eventual disability and death. As the disease progresses, individuals may be unable to control muscular movement, the ability to eat and speak, and the body experiences difficulty breathing.
The ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a chronic progressive disease characterized by motor neuron lesions. The causes of this disease have not been fully elucidated. You should know that this form of sclerosis is degenerative. Stem cells have the capacity to regenerate and are able to grow into different types of cells. The stem cell therapy recovers the motor neurons and other cells in order to protect these neurons and to re-establish the microenvironment into the brain and the spinal cord.
