This is so promising. Such a horrible disease. Hope they can irradiate it.

You're welcome, R3.

I'm in awe of the researchers who have put in the work to accomplish this. They are true heroes!

That would be amazing. If only we can find a cure for cancer. I think scientists already figured out a way to reverse aging and thereby returning the body to a younger healthier version. The question remains whether it’s ethical to do so and how the overpopulation affects the earth.

ALS is one of those diseases I dread getting. This is so exciting - something to be truly happy about in the midst of Trump. Thank you for the post, OP.

I fervently hope the new research ultimately works against this dreadful disease.

This is truly wonderful news. I hope it can happen sooner than the 3-5 years they are thinking. If this is as promising as they think, they need to get everyone on this.
