JNS.org – The Israeli company BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics, revealing results from a clinical trial for its stem cell treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in adults, said most patients in the trial displayed improvement in the form of slower progression of the disease.

ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects 5,600 people in the U.S. alone, according to the ALS Association. Famed physicist Stephen Hawking has a slow-progressing form of the disease.

In Surprise, Israeli City of Netanya Set to Host 2018 World Lacrosse Championships

JNS.org - Miriam Feirberg-Ikar, mayor of the Israeli city of Netanya, and Israel Lacrosse Association (ILA) Chairman Scott Neiss announced...

BrainStorm’s stem cell treatment, called NurOwn, was administered to 14 patients as part of the trial at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. Eleven of the 12 patients with three or more months of follow-up showed improvement in slowing the disease’s progression.

The study provides “a consistent and highly promising picture of NurOwn’s efficacy,” said BrainStorm CEO Tony Fiorino.

“In particular, I would highlight that we observed not only a highly meaningful reduction in ALS progression… but we saw subjects with prolonged stabilization and even improvements in function, and all this was achieved with just a single dose of NurOwn,” he said. “We are excited to proceed to a multi-dose study to see if these positive results can be amplified and extended by administering repeated doses.”

    I am from U.S.A, I was diagnosed of ALS disease (Lou Gehrigs disease) in 2012 and I have tried all I can to get cured but all to no avail, my life was gradually coming to an end, until i saw a post in a health forum about a herbal doctor from Africa who prepares herbal cure to cure HIV/aids and all kind of diseases including ALS, MND, Epilepsy, Leukemia, Asthma, Cancer, Gonorrhea etc, at first i doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try, when i contact this herbal doctor via his email, he prepared an ALS herbal portion and sent it to me via courier service, when i received this herbal portion, he gave me step by step instructions on how to apply it, when i applied it as instructed, i was cured of this deadly disease within 7 days, I could not walk or talk understandably before but after i took the herbal cure as he instructed i regained strength in my bones and i could talk properly unlike before, I am now free from the deadly disease, all thanks to Dr ODI.

      Youre obviously lying and trying to take advantage of people with AlS. You say you’re from the US yet you cant write or punctuate proper.

    My names are Andrew Parker… ALS has been ongoing in my family for long..I lost both parents to
    ALS and it is so much pain have not been able to get over. As we all know medically,there is no solution or cure for ALS and the cost for Medication is very expensive..Someone introduced me
    to a Herbal man email:(droyekpenherbalhome@gmail.com)(Native Medical Practitioner)in oxford.. I showed
    the man all my Tests and Results and i told him have already diagnosed with ALS and have spent thousands of dollars
    on medication..I said i will like to try him cos someone introduced me to him..He asked me sorts of questions and i answered him correctly..To cut the story short,He gave me some medicinal soaps and some herbs(have forgot the name he called them) and he thought me how am gonna use them
    all..At first i was skeptical but i just gave it a try..I was on his Medication for 2 weeks and
    i used all the soaps and herbs according to his prescription..that he will finish the rest himself..and i called him 3 days after, i arrived and i told him what is
    the next thing..he said,he has been expecting my call.. he told me to visit my doctor for another test..Honestly speaking,i never
    believe all he was saying until after the test when my doctor mention the statement that am, also negative
