The work. Advances, challenges and future directions for stem cell therapy in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis Article (PDF Available) in Molecular Neurodegeneration 12(1). Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive disease of the motor neurons (nerve cells that control the skeletal muscles).

As motor neurons are affected, gradual weakness, atrophy and paralysis of the skeletal muscles occur. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a specific disease which causes the death of the neurons. It is a group of rare neurological diseases. The neurons death causes muscle weakness and impact on physical and muscular tinnitus.A neuron is a cell that carries the electrical impulses.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neuromuscular disorder characterised by respiratory muscle weakness and a progressive decline in lung function.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rapid and fatal neurodegenerative disease, primarily affecting upper and lower motor neurons. It is an extremely heterogeneous disease in both cause and symptom development, and its mechanisms of pathogenesis remain largely by: 7.

Of this class of diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is the most common. Other MNDs differ in age of onset, distribution of motor neuron involvement, and disease severity. Most occur sporadically and have no clear cause, while a minority are inherited.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by relentless loss of motor neuron function. 1 The selective degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons results in progressive weakness of the limb, bulbar, abdominal, and thoracic muscles.
