Spotlight on ALS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, ALS, is a very rare but deadly motor-neuron disease that causes the nerves controlling the muscles to break down and die.

Several of the articles on this page have previously been published in Swedish in our magazine Medical Science (Medicinsk Vetenskap).
