Mayo Clinic researchers place ALS hope in stem cells
by Jeff Hansel

Seventy-five years after baseball player Lou Gehrig was diagnosed with ALS, Mayo Clinic researchers have begun a human study hoping to slow progression of the devastating ailment. ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerLogo for Post-Bulletin newspaperosis, has become widely known as Lou Gehrig's disease…"Lifespan after diagnosis is roughly two to three years, but there's a huge range," said Mayo neurologist Dr. Nathan Staff. Affected individuals can survive more than a decade after diagnosis, or die within six months…"We don't know if it will work or not," said Dr. Anthony Windebank, deputy director for discovery in the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Mayo.

Gehrig was gracious in Rochester visit
by Paul Christian

…On June 15, 1939, Lou Gehrig, baseball's "Iron Man," arrived in Rochester to see Mayo Clinic doctors about his mysterious decline.

ALS legacy under revision at Mayo Clinic
by Jeff Hansel

Prestige sometimes springs from unfortunate circumstance. Such was the case for Mayo Clinic in 1939 when baseball player Lou Gehrig got his devastating diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, in Rochester. As a result, Lou Gehrig's disease and Mayo Clinic will forever be inseparably linked. Mayo researchers hope the clinic's next inextricable connection to Lou Gehrig's disease will be a patient-derived stem-cell treatment to slow — or even "arrest" — progression of the disease….It's important to manage public expectations, said Dr. Anthony Windebank, deputy director for discovery in the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Mayo.

Reach: The Post-Bulletin has a weekend readership of nearly 45,000 people and daily readership of more than 41,000 people. The newspaper serves Rochester, Minn., and southeast Minnesota.

Context: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a rapidly progressive, uniformly fatal neurodegenerative disease. It is characterized by the loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord, brainstem and cerebral cortex, leading to a decline in muscular function.

Mayo doctor says new migraine treatments appear promising

Two treatments are showing some promise in helping those who suffer from migraine headaches. For the last 20 years, doctors have known of a protein that plays an important role in the formation of migraines, but now, there may be some good news. "A couple of antibodies have been developed against that particular protein," said Dr. David Dodick, neurology professor at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale. "These antibodies are delivered, one intravenously and one subcutaneously, like an insulin injection."
