Klotho Protein Protects Brains of ALS Mice, Study Suggests

The klotho protein may have brain-protecting effects in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), according to a study in mice that may become a basis for developing new therapies. The study, “Klotho Is Neuroprotective in the Superoxide Dismutase (SOD1G93A) Mouse Model of ALS,” was published in the Journal…

Certain Blood Markers Linked to Different Stages of ALS, Study Suggests

Differences in blood parameters, such as total protein levels, are associated with different stages of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), meaning they could become valuable biomarkers to track disease progression in clinical practice, a study suggests. The study, “Clinical disease stage related changes of serological factors in amyotrophic lateral…
