  Today, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS - an incurable disease, which is usually within five years results in death. In this disease, patients lose the ability to breathe, move or swallow. But a new study conducted Israeli scientists, gives hope to those suffering from this terrible disease. Not so long ago, Israel began a study that would like to participate with people around the world suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. As part of the study, scientists are exploring the possibility to increase the number of autologous stem cells (which are taken from the patient's own bone marrow) to stop the disease, and the potential improvement of the patient.

  Clinical study conducted with mesenchymal stem cells, which were not so long ago discovered and that can create almost all types of tissues and cells, including the cells of the CNS. ALS patients are taken from bone marrow stem cells and grown under sterile conditions in a month to get a few cells from a few tens of millions of cells. In addition, the scientists used special techniques "force" cells differentiate so that they secrete proteins that are required for communication between nerves and muscles, because, according to scientists, ALS - is breaking the link between the nervous and muscular system. Now, in this study, the modified stem cells were injected 12 patients, who have long suffered ALS and 12 patients in whom the disease is discovered recently. Experts hope that the study, they will be able to find a real working method of stopping the development of ALS, which will be safe and will have no side effects.

  Should be noted that in Israel, now more than seven hundred people suffering from ALS, and, for example, in North America with more than 25 thousand.
