    Muscular atrophy of hand muscles persisted. Large fibers were involved more extensively than small fibers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most people with PN have reduced or absent ankle reflexes (involuntary responses to a stimulus).[thebody.com] Boulis works on novel treatments for several nerve disorders, including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease) and Spinal Muscular Atrophy[emoryhealthcare.org]

  • Motor Neuron Disease

    Some MNDs, such as ALS and some forms of spinal muscular atrophy, are fatal.[ninds.nih.gov] A somewhat better prognosis is seen in progressive muscular atrophy, where patients live up to 25 years.[symptoma.com] atrophies (NMAs) and compared these patterns to mouse models of neurogenic muscular atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
