What is ALS?
ALS aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease is a horrendous disease attacking the neuromuscular system of the body, slowly and systematically rendering the person paralyzed and unable to breathe.
ALS is classified as a rare disease with a much smaller population (20,000 US) of people affected than that of cancer (2 million US). Thus, the profit potential of an ALS drug is limited and companies tend to invest where the profit potential is greatest.
