e increased expression of several neurotrophic factors."

Since ALS is a progressive, fatal disease characterized by the loss of motor neurons, motor neuron preservation is critical. According to the researchers, the combination treatment of BMT and GCSF had a greater impact via significant neuroprotective and neuroregenerative effects than when compared to BMT alone.

GCSF was administered to not only provide a neuroprotective effect, but also to stimulate the proliferation of bone marrow cells," said Dr. Abe.
