I'm sorry but I really do not understand the rest of your post. I do not know what IM or IP injections are, as I am new to all of this.
Sorry for not explaining myself better.
IM stands for Intra Muscular (injections).
IP stands for Intra Peritoneal (injections).
Thank you Lord because they (Researchers) are proving me right. I have always suspected that ALS has to be an AUTO-IMMUNE disorder.
Why I think this? Because, how can it be possible that ONLY the Motor Neurons are SELECTIVELY targeted for destruction?
What targets them? Why?
It looks to me that some Lymphocytes see the Motor Neurons as an enemy and selectively kill them.
If this process can somehow be stopped or reversed, then the rest of the Motor Neurons can be preserved.
No wonder why they (Researchers) have not found an effective cure for this disease, because they are using the WRONG approach to fight it.
