Default Muscle Toxicity

Carey (my ever hopeful, beautiful, wife) recently found this article showing a relationship between a strain of RNA and muscles toxicity. It seems to imply that the muscles are causing the issue that kills the neurons and not the neurons killing the muscles. In the mice they were able to hault or slow progression.

Default Re: Muscle Toxicity

Interesting. Thank you

I think it is saying that substances produced in the muscles may contribute to the death of motor neurons and axons. Whether this is the primary issue in some cases remains to be seen

Whatever is happening on a micro level ALS is still a motor neuron disease

I hope this clue proves helpful in finding the answers we all need

Thank you for sharing
