The study that was recently completed was primarily a safety study. Some efficacy data was collected, but it was not powered for that question (at present, even slowing ALS would be enough for a drug to be approved, and is much more likely). The next study (planned as a Phase II/III) will provide more information in that regard.

VM202 is further advanced in diabetic peripheral neuropathy and non-healing foot ulcers (Phase III), which will help it gain approval for ALS if it is effective in this disease.

At this time there is NO CURE for ALS.
