Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease is a neurological disease that affects nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain. In Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the motor neurons die and the ability of the brain to control muscle movement is lost. This leads to muscle weakness and eventually death. The leading cause of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a hereditary mutation on chromosome 21. There is no known cure for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; however, the drug Riluzole has been proven to delay the onset of tracheostomy and increase survival by approximately 3-5 months.
