Homocysteine (Hcy) exerts multiple neurotoxic mechanisms that have also been shown to be relevant in the pathogenesis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We reviewed the published evidence to assess possible correlations between Hcy and ALS. A Medline literature search was performed to identify all studies on Hcy and ALS or motor neurons published from… CONTINUE READING
