Knock Out Lou Gehrig's Disease

I got this through my daily news alert:

TheIndyChannel.com - Health - Company: Development Could Help Knock Out Lou Gehrig's Disease

It seems as if I've heard of this before, but I can't remember. All the research I read about is starting to run together in my head. In any case, this is interesting. The down side is: (1) if you've already lost motor neurons, it seems this doesn't get them back (so you're just as paralyzed), and (2) it's for people who get it genetically, which is only about 10%.

This looks like a rewrite of a press release to me. I see CytRx pop up in my news alerts every once in a while, and it's typically "please invest money in us" kind of stuff.
