    ReportsandReports

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rare, but fatal, motor neuron disease (MND) characterized by axonal degeneration and progressive loss of motor neurons. ALS affects both the upper (brain to spinal cord) and lower (brain stem to muscle tissue) motor neurons, gradually reducing a patient's ability to initiate and control muscle movement. Muscle atrophy, starting in the periphery (arms and legs), ultimately leads to complete paralysis after several years of progressive worsening of muscle strength. Respiratory failure is the most common cause of death, as smooth muscle function becomes affected when the disease is in its final stages. The progressively degenerative course of the condition is a great burden for both patients and caregivers, as well as for society. ALS usually affects people age =40 years, and has a worldwide incidence of about two cases per 100,000 population, and a prevalence ranging between four and seven cases per 100,000.

Highlights

Key Questions Answered

  • How does the patent expiration of Rilutek effect the ALS market?
