With no cure in sight since medical experts classified amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, usually referred to as ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease, a MAJOR medical breakthrough has been discovered!
Researchers have found a common protein present in EVERY patient suffering from the neurodegenerative disorder that has been studied since the late 1980's.

Check out the video above to learn more about this exciting discovery as CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta breaks down what the protein is and how it could affect ALS.
