me heart fluttered a little when i found out you had posted this particular message, Al.

but would anyone care to put the article into layman's terms as to what this could mean for the treatment of ALS?

brain ain't functioning too good today.

This is what I got.

"Several neurodegenerative diseases occur when proteins start to malform, said Michnick. Steinberg's research could give insight in how that happens, and why".

One of the suspected mechanisms of ALS is misfolded proteins. If they can use that information to figure out the rules under which chemicals combine to form proteins then perhaps they can ensure they form correctly or at a minimum get more information on a cause/treatment.
