I tried, but wouldn't work. I noticed there is a Z at the end if you take it out it will work

Great article...I also wonder what "glial" cells are...

None of us know what could happen in the future, but articles like this certainly add a bit of sunshine!

Happy weekend to all,
Never give up,
Never let up,
Never lose faith,

That article was AMAZING and very uplifting! Did anyone else notice how YOUNG Kevin Eggan appears to be? Thank God there are super brilliant individuals like him working (probably quite literally) day and night to find a cure!

Thanks for the VERY interesting link
I dont fully understand what the glial are or the SOD1 gene, but they all keep talking about them....
Thankfully this type of news seems to coming in more frequently...more and more little steps, lets hope they get to a full blown race. ...then we can all win...
keep up the good work all you scientists...lets just pray they do get the THE full answer SOON...this kind of news makes me more sure we should collect the umbilical cord blood from our two new grandchildren due early 2009.
