Stem Cells Provide New Tool for Studying Disease and Identifying ALS Drugs

...a fatal neurodegenerative disease that selectively destroys motor neurons, messenger cells responsible for virtually all voluntary movement. Until now, scientists have not known whether motor neurons in ALS die because of a problem within the cell—or from outside the cell. The study by Eggan's group describ...

Arsenic in Chicken Feed may Cause Health Complications
