Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Infographic

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a neurological disease which impacts motor neurons that are involved in muscle movement throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of neurons causes weakened muscles and can lead to paralysis. There is no cure for ALS, but riluzole has been used to help with the damage to the motor neurons.
