Top 10 ALS Stories of 2020 – (Read Here: https://alsnewstoday.com/news-posts/2022/01/03/top-10-als-stories-of-2020/)
What do you think? Did you read them? Do they indicate progress or stagnation?
Bottom line, did any of the top stories of 2020 extend the life of any pALS in 2021? The slow pace of research is disheartening to me.
In 1939 when Lou Gehrig was diagnosed with ALS, the expected ALS life expectancy after diagnosis was 2 to 5 years. Eighty-plus years later and the life expectancy is still 2 to 5 years.
Will the top stories of 2021, 2022, and beyond repeat this pattern?
