In November of 2007, researchers in Italy announced the results of a trial using Lithium Carbonate to treat 16 ALS patients, in which they claimed that no patients progressed over the 15 month trial period. This study has yet to be published, but, if the results are verified, they are unprecedented in ALS research. In fact, previous laboratory studies have demonstrated that lithium has numerous neuro-protective properties.
This website has been created to help spread information about lithium for treatment of ALS, and to gather data from ALS patients choosing to try or not to try lithium treatments in an attempt to verify the results of the Italian study.
|Warning! Lithium in any form can be toxic. Lithium should not be taken without a doctor’s supervision and frequent monitoring of blood levels|
