"Als" in context

Als (or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a rare disease that causes the death of motor neurons in the spinal cord and brain. It is a progressive neurodegenerative condition characterized by muscle weakness and difficulty with speech, breathing, and swallowing. As the motor neurons die, patients gradually lose their ability to move and communicate. Despite advances in medical treatments, there is currently no known cure for ALS.

ALS is most commonly diagnosed in adult males over the age of 50. Early signs and symptoms may include twitching, muscle weakness and slurred speech. As the disease progresses, it can lead to paralysis, dementia, and death.
