As many of you know, I have two previous posts about a drug in trial called NP001 (see “Salty Dog” and “All Roads”). In the past few days ALSA released a statement about this trial. I thank ALSA for doing this service for pals in spreading the word about this trial.
Recent research seems to finally hold real promise of effective treatment for ALS, the realization of over a century of work. However, until we have the hard data all we have is promise and hope (which while powerful are still ineffective treatments for real disease). It is the responsibility of eligible PALS to become “jurors” in these trials and help us all to find the facts which can free us from the death sentence which Fate has issued.
