Motor Neuron Disease Funded Clinical Trials

Motor-Neuron-Disease

The first Phase 1 clinical trial of Copper-ATSM as a potential treatment option for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) will start in 2016. Cu-ATSM therapy was developed in Melbourne Australia, and the trial is a true example of Australian scientific ingenuity and innovation, and demonstrates the calibre of MND researchers we have in this Country. To …

Motor Neuron Disease – Comprehensive Overview

What Is Motor Neuron Disease? Motor Neuron Disease is a serious type of progressive neurodegeneration- in which over the time; nerves in the brain and spine progressively lose function. Moreover, in case of Motor neuron disease, cells that control your muscle activity for example swallowing, breathing, walking and speaking tends to get destroyed. The motor …
