Department of Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) , or “Locked-In Syndrome”, is an extreme neurological disorder and many patients opt against life support. Most commonly, the disease strikes people between the ages of 40 and 70, and as many as 30,000 Americans have the disease at any given time. (ALS Association website). Genetic factors appear to only account for 10 percent of all ALS cases. ALS can strike anyone, anytime. There are no effective treatments and no cure. Brain activity appears to remain vigorous while muscle control atrophies degeneritively and completely.
