    Genetic changes known as epigenetics could lead to better understanding of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and to new treatments, a study suggests. Click here to learn more.

    What do you think of this study and its findings?

    Epigenetics is certainly a promising field – – but as the article stated; they are a decade away from having any real diagnostics or treatment use for ALS.

    Hopefully, the transition from cells (derived from post-mortem ALS patients), zebra fish and mice to finally testing with living ALS patients will progress faster than 10 years.
