Just now, I read about some clinical trial in phase I that if effective, will be on the market for you guys within the coming 3 years. The first tests were very promising. First of all, the technique was safe. But besides that, people with ALS became better: they improved swallowing, breathing, speaking and muscular power.
I'll citate the most interesting quote from the articles:
The biggest hope in the field
Israeli ALS activist Avichai Kremer of prize4life and of the Israeli ALS Association was the first person to receive experimental injections of NurOwn at Hadassah last October. He reported nearly three months later that the treatment seemed to stop the progression of his ALS and improved his breathing and speaking.
