Lithium Safe But Of No Benefit To ALS Patients

A clinical trial concludes that while lithium carbonate appears to be safe, it is ineffective at treating amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a type of motor neuron disease (MND) that is also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. The trial investigators, led by King's College London's Institute of Psychiatry, report the results of the LiCALS trial in the April print issue of The Lancet Neurology, which was published online at the end of February...

CONCLUSIONS: RMT may improve lung capacity and respiratory muscle strength in some NMDs. In ALS there may not be any clinically meaningful effect of RMT on physical functioning or quality of life and it is uncertain whether it causes adverse effects. Due to clinical heterogeneity between the trials and the small number of participants included in the analysis, together with the risk of bias, these results must be interpreted very cautiously.
