  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Prior animal studies have shown that silencing SOD1 led to preservation of grip strength and a delay in the onset of motor function deficits [ 125, 126 ].[doi.org] Her tendon reflexes were brisk, and Babinski's sign was positive. She was diagnosed with probable amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If upper motor neurons are also damaged, spasticity and hyperreflexia and pathologic reflexes, such as Babinski’s sign, can also be observed.[flexikon.doccheck.com]
