This week, Mike and Jeremy continue the discussion around Amylyx Pharmaceutical’s phase 2 clinical trial results of AMX0035, which was shown to slow down progression of ALS in trial participants. They are joined by Dr. Kuldip Dave, vice president of research at The ALS Association, to gain insight into how AMX0035 fits into the broader context of the ALS research landscape. They then are joined by two leaders from the ALS community, Sandy Morris and Tommy May, who share their thoughts on why this gives the community hope, and how the petition to expedite access to AMX0035 illustrates the level of urgency in the fight.
