ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. As motor neurons die in the cells, the brain's ability to send signals to the body's muscles is compromised. This leads to loss of voluntary muscle movement, paralysis and eventually respiratory failure. There is no proven treatment or cure for ALS, and most patients die within five years of diagnosis.
