Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is the most serious form of degenerative motor neuron disease in adults, whose relentless course leads to death within 2-5 years, generally due to respiratory failure. Apart from the age and site of onset, no other factors have consistently demonstrated to be related to the ALS outcome. The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of fasting serum lipid levels (cholesterol and triglycerides) and the body mass index (BMI) at the time of diagnosis on… CONTINUE READING
