Hi all,


Today, PatientsLikeMe reveals the results of a patient-initiated observational study refuting a 2008(1) published study that claimed lithium carbonate could slow the progression of the neurodegenerative disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). PatientsLikeMe, a health data-sharing website with more than 100,000 patients and 500+ conditions, announces its study results in the journal, Nature Biotechnology.

Another nail in the hope that lithium carbonate could slow progression. I think we all knew this anyway!
