"Simplified Study Aims To Quickly Test A Long-Shot ALS Treatment"
"October 25, 20164:17 PM ET Heard on All Things Considered, By Richard Harris."
"......doctors and patients alike got interested in an extraordinary ALS patient whose symptoms actually got better, which rarely occurs. He'd been taking a dietary supplement called lunasin, "and lo and behold six months later, [his] speech [was] back to normal, swallowing back to normal, doesn't use his feeding tube, [and he was] significantly stronger as measured by his therapists," said Richard Bedlack, a neurologist who runs the ALS clinic at Duke University........And if the approach is successful, it could apply to other diseases as well."

"The Mystery of ALS Patients Who See Improvement" June 13, 2016 - Wall Street Journal Article by Amy Marcus

Today, Mr. McDuff can swallow again and has gained weight. His arms are still weak, but he can walk short distances. He is the first to say he isn’t cured. But now, “I have a better quality of life,” he says.
Dr. Bedlack believes that studying these so-called “ALS reversals” and trying to determine what, if anything, separates these individuals from the overwhelming majority of others may lead to new understanding of the disease and, potentially, new therapies." Read full article.
