 Fungus used in traditional medicine could slow neuron loss in ALS
 
Fungus used in traditional medicine could slow neuron loss in ALSHirsutella sinensis (HS), a Chinese caterpillar fungus that is used in traditional Chinese medicine has been found to minimize motor neuron loss in mice models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The fungus was also found to extend the lifespan of mice, marking a promising development in discovering therapeutic treatment for ALS.
