Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often called “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. As motor neurons degenerate, they can no longer send the impulses to the muscle fibers that would usually result in muscle movement. Approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. The incidence of ALS is two per 100,000 people, and it is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans may have Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

At this time there is no treatment to control ALS except FDA approved Riluzole, which somewhat slows the progression of the illness.

Recent research has shown that autologous stem cell therapy can effectively improve the condition of patients who are suffering from ALS. From a study in Thailand, from the use electroneuromyography, nine out of thirteen patients shown significant improvements. Brian Dardzinski, Returning Hope’s CEO, was excited about the result of this trial which proves the efficacy of stem cell treatment against ALS.
