Stem Cell Therapy for ALS
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is characterized by a progressive loss (reduction) of certain nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord called motor neurons. ALS is a progressive disease. Walking, talking, eating, and other fundamental functions are becoming more difficult gradually. These issues can cause various other diseases and complications.
The stem cell therapy for ALS can help patients struggling with the condition to improve their health, by relieving the symptoms and slowing the progression of the disease. Stem cells have the capability to differentiate into any type of cells and tissues, therefore they replace damaged cells and help the tissue regenerate and regain its lost functions.
