Stem Cell Treatment for Lou Gehrig's Disease May be Safe
In this study, researchers found that transplanting human stem cells into the spinal cord may be done safely in patients who have been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease. However, these stem cells did not seem to slow the progression of the disease. “This study was not designed, nor was it large enough, to determine the effectiveness of slowing or stopping the progression of ALS. The importance of this study is that it will allow us to move forward to a larger trial specifically designed to test whether transplantation of human stem cells into the spinal cord will be a positive treatment for patients with ALS,” Glass said.
