Scientists test growth factors in fight against brain diseases

This came from my news alert:

Scientists test growth factors in fight against brain diseases

The article is about several different treatments. It starts out with some broad text that talks about all of them. It then has sections on individual ailments.

There's a treatment for ALS listed that may extend life by 25%. The patient they talked to who's in the trial and has ALS has had ALS for a year and a half and still lives by herself. She has trouble speaking and using one hand. I wish my mom were doing that well.
