Currently ALS is a disease without a cure or effective treatments

Life expectancy after diagnosis can be from 2–5 years, yet, according to the ALS Association:

"About twenty percent of people with ALS live 5 years or more, and up to ten percent will survive more than 10 years and five percent will live 20 years. There are people in whom ALS has stopped progressing and a small number of people in whom the symptoms of ALS reversed."

So there is hope, and new technologies create greater hope, notably at UC San Diego where clinicians and scientists have established an ALS & Motor Neuron Treatment & Research Center — a team of professionals who study the disease while meeting the whole-patient needs of people with ALS and their families.
