IMMUNE SYSTEM MODULATOR HERALDS NEW STRATEGY IN ALS RESEARCH Blocking a key molecular pathway that the body uses to amplify an immune response has been found to delay disease onset and extend survival in mice with a disease that mimics human ALS, say researchers at the MDA-supported ALS Therapy...

Motor neurons are lost in ALS, but new evidence shows they don't die without significant help from their neighboring cells. These neighbors may be easier to target with therapies than the motor neurons themselves.

Failure to recognize differences among mice with mutated SOD1 genes may be the key to understanding why so many medications that looked good in mouse studies later failed to benefit humans with ALS, say researchers at the MDA-supported ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) in Cambridge,...
