LONDON – Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as ‘Lou Gehrig’s Disease’, is a rare, but pernicious, progressive neurodegenerative disease, which negatively influence the nerve cells in the spinal cord and in the brain. ALS has a severe impact on physical functioning and primarily presents with muscle twitching, with slurring of speech and/or weakness in a leg or arm.  Eventually, people suffering from ALS lose ability to control their muscles needed to speak, move, breathe, eat, which ultimately leads to death. Besides, the progressively degenerative course of the condition is a significant burden for both caregivers and patients, and also for society.
