Is it too soon for Mesenchymal Stem Cell trials in people with ALS?
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting primarily the motor neurons. Stem cell therapy is under development as a possible treatment approach. A pilot study of intraspinal injections of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) was conducted in 9 participants. We review this paper, the rationale, preclinical data and study design.
