According to this new study, 85% of PALS developed symptoms in the upper lower motor neurons, with 10% lower motor neuron only.The mean survival of PALS in this study was 34 months with bulbar onset ALS (PALS survive only 12 months on average in China).The second day of the International ALS/MND Research Symposium started off with a talk from Kevin Eggan of Harvard University (pictured). Eggan is recognized as the first person to create an induced pluripotent stem cell line from a person diagnosed with ALS (the technology and process to create i PS cells was invented previously by Shinya Yamanaka, M. Before subjecting this cell line to experiments, the team spends about 30 days confirming its status and stability. Regardless, the Eggan lab differentiated its i PS cells into motor neurons over a period of 24 days on average, creating a disease-relevant cell line to study.One such drug screened, retigabine, showed the greatest benefit in the lab’s cell based screen.Retigabine (pictured) is thought to open potassium acid channels and correct the sodium channel regulation in motor neurons.Recently, Cui and her colleagues in 10 different research hospitals created an ALS registry, recruiting and documenting 461 PALS from across China.According to China ALS Registry data, only 29% of PALS take rilutek versus 39% which opt for traditional herbs to treat the disease.
China is the world’s most populous country with more than 1.3 billion people.
Less than 1% of FALS cases in China are carriers of the C9orf72 expansion, according to Cui.
More commonly found are SOD1 (26%), TDP43 (5.6%), and FUS (12%).
Finally, it is worth noting that in the age of oligogenetics in ALS, TDP43 proteins mislocalized in the C9orf72 i PSc lines created in Mutihac’s lab.
An entire session at this year’s International Symposium was devoted to the epidemiology of ALS.
However, according to Cui’s research, the percentage of ALS/FTD in China is only 2% overall.
