I know that the Phase III will end in October and that the people in the trial that were getting the placebo will get the real stuff along with the people that were already getting the real Dex. Don't know when that all will end. And then the FDA will have to approve. If ALS were contagious or more prevalent they'd speed it along. As it is it's rare and not contagious. Fooie! Hang in there! We can do this! Hugs and good thoughts to you!
