566 top medical experts on Motor Neuron Disease across 49 countries and 32 U.S. states, including 440 MDs (Physicians). This is based on an objective analysis of their Scientific Publications, Clinical Trials, Medicare, and NIH Grants.

  1. Motor Neuron Disease: Diseases characterized by a selective degeneration of the motor neurons of the spinal cord, brainstem, or motor cortex. Clinical subtypes are distinguished by the major site of degeneration. In amyotrophic lateral sclerosis there is involvement of upper, lower, and brainstem motor neurons. In progressive muscular atrophy and related syndromes (see muscular atrophy, spinal) the motor neurons in the spinal cord are primarily affected. With progressive bulbar palsy (bulbar palsy, progressive), the initial degeneration occurs in the brainstem. In primary lateral sclerosis, the cortical neurons are affected in isolation. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1089)
  2. Clinical guidelines are the recommended starting point to understand initial steps and current protocols in any disease or procedure:
