What is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a group of rare
neurological diseases that mainly involve the nerve cells
(neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle
movement. Voluntary muscles produce movements like
chewing, walking, and talking. The disease is progressive,
meaning the symptoms get worse over time. Currently, there
is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt, or
reverse, the progression of the disease. The cause of ALS is
not known, and scientists do not yet know why ALS strikes
some people and not others.

La ELA es una enfermedad del sistema nervioso central,
caracterizada por una degeneración progresiva de las
neuronas motoras en la corteza cerebral (neuronas motoras
superiores), tronco del encéfalo y médula espinal (neuronas
motoras inferiores). Esta degeneración causa la pérdida de
la capacidad del cerebro para iniciar y controlar el
movimiento muscular, ocasionando una atrofia muscular
que avanza hacia una parálisis progresiva. Aparte de la
autonomía motora, la capacidad de habla, deglución y
respiración también se ven afectadas.
