  • Purpose of reviewAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a rare but fatal motoneuron disorder. Despite intensive research riluzole remains the only available therapy, with only marginal effects on survival. Here we review some of the recent advances in the search for a disease-modifying therapy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Recent findingsA number of established agents have recently been re-investigated for their potential as neuroprotective agents, including β-lactam antibiotics and minocycline… CONTINUE READING
