Another Potential Victory for Stem Cell Research

ADULT stem cells, that is. This time, it appears that we may be looking at a breakthrough in treating amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better-known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

Of course, Gehrig was not the only Yankee hall-of-famer to die of the disease, as Jim “Catfish” Hunter–one of the best MLB pitchers in the 1970s, who won World Series titles with the Oakland A’s and New York Yankees–also succumbed to ALS.

  1. My Elder brother was suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis(ALS),Stem Cell therapy made it possible that he can live his life like us. . I have seen so many Neurological disease suffering patients treated with Stem Cell Therapy at Stem Cell Global Foundation..Stem Cell treatment is very promising in giving A QUALITY LIFE. Thanks to my Uncle who suggested us to visit once Stem Cell Global Foundation’s website, http://www.stemcellgf.org

    That is true; and those are adult stem cell therapies–which are not an area of contention–as opposed to embryonic stem cell therapies, which have yet to show any promise and which involve the killing of children.
