I have one friend (pALS of 2 years) who is participating in a stem cell trial that is currently on-going. He has had his bone marrow harvested and is waiting for stem cells to be created and then injected into his spine (in about 4 months). He won’t be receiving motor neuron cells…just stem cells. The researchers are still at the stage of evaluating the process, not the outcome.
However, I think stem cell therapy once it is perfected will hold great promise for healing conditions such as ALS.
