ALS

What is ALS?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a disease of the spinal cord and nerve cells in the brain. As ALS progresses, nerve cells die and can no longer send messages to the muscles. There is eventually loss of muscle strength, weight loss, difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, and paralysis.

Treatments for ALS include physical therapy, rehabilitation, breathing devices, and medications to slow the progression or treat symptoms. Some drugs used in the treatment of ALS include benzothiazoles (Rilutek) and NMDA receptor antagonist / antiarrhythmic combinations (Nuedexta).
