Carolyn Shimek takes cholesterol-decreasing medications like millions of Americans. However she does not have high cholesterol like others//. This is since she is taking part in a different clinical study found only at the Methodist Neurological Institute (NI) to view the benefits of Lipitor on the immune system in patients with Lou Gehrig's disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ....P...

Genetic Variations In Detoxifying Genes Lead To Lou Gehrig's diseases

A new study links the genetic variations in detoxifying enzymes for developing Lou Gehrig's diseases//. ....The study shows that the genetic variations in three enzymes, which are used to detoxify insecticides and nerve gas agents as well as for metabolising cholesterol lowering, statin drugs might be a risk factor for developing irregular ‘Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis’ (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's di...

Clues to the Mystery of Lou Gehrig's Disease

Researchers have recently reported clues to unraveling the mystery of the disease best known for striking down New York Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig nearly 70 years ago//. ..According to Virginia Lee, Ph.D., of the University of Pennsylvania a team of researchers has identified the misfolded protein that causes both Lou Gehrig's disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), as well as a les...

Human Stem Cells Delay Start of Lou Gehrig’s Disease in Rat

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have shown that transplanting human stem cells into spinal cords of rats bred to duplicate Lou Gehrig’s disease delays the start of nerve// cell damage typical of the disease and slightly prolongs life. The grafted stem cells develop into nerve cells that make substantial connections with existing nerves and do not themselves succumb to Lou Gehrig’s, also known as amy...

Gene Hunters at Johns Hopkins Close In On Lou Gehrig's Disease

In the first genomewide search for the genetic roots of the most common form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Johns Hopkins scientists// have newly identified 34 unique variations in the human genetic code among 276 unrelated subjects with ALS. ..The 34 so-called single nucleotide polymorphisms, or SNPs, represent good candidate genes predisposing people to the noninherited form of the fatal n...

$5M Gift Will Attack Lou Gehrig's Disease

Twenty years ago, retail pioneer and philanthropist A. Alfred Taubman lost a good friend to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis a horrifying fatal disease thats better known as Lou Gehrigs disease or ALS. ......The memory of watching New York Sen. Jacob Javits slowly succumb to the nerve-killing condition has never left Mr. Taubmans mind. And that memory has motivated him to support ALS research at...

Boffins a Step Closer to Solving Puzzle of Lou Gehrig's Disease

Moving closer to solving Lou Gehrig's disease mystery, UCLA, Italian chemists may have solved an important mystery about a protein that plays a key role in a particular form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, a progressive, fatal neuro-degenerative disorder that strikes without warning. ......Joan Selverstone Valentine, UCLA professor of chemistry and bi...
