Quest for the Gene - Mayo Clinic

Posted by @stacytheobald in Just Want to Talk, Sep 12, 2012

Lou Gehrig's Disease, or ALS, is a condition that slowly robs you of your ability to move, eat or even breathe. A related condition, called frontotemporal dementia, or FTD, causes severe personality changes. Both diseases are fatal because they cause cells in your brain to die. For years, scientists have been searching for reason as to why this happens. A discovery at Mayo Clinic offers some answers and new hope for future treatment of these diseases.
