MADISON, Wis. — Transplantation of human stem cells in an experiment conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison improved survival and muscle function in rats used to model ALS, a nerve disease that destroys nerve control of muscles, causing death by respiratory failure.

ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is sometimes called “Lou Gehrig’s disease." According to the ALS Association, the condition strikes about 5,600 Americans each year. Only about half of patients are alive three years after diagnosis. 

In work recently completed at the UW School of Veterinary Medicine, Masatoshi Suzuki, an assistant professor of ..........................

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have accomplished a notable feat in stem cell research that could lead to new models for drug screening and discovery--they have transformed human embryonic stem cells into nerve cells that helped mice regain the ability to learn and remember.

In what the UW scientists believe is the first study of its kind, a.............
