    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)—

    also referred to as motor neurone disease (MND), Charcot disease, and, in the United States, Lou Gehrig's disease—is a neurodegenerative disease with various causes. It is characterised by muscle spasticity, rapidly progressive weakness due to muscle atrophy, and difficulty in speaking, swallowing, and breathing.

    Riluzole (Rilutek) is the only treatment that has been found to improve survival but only to a modest extent.[59] It lengthens survival by several months, and may have a greater survival benefit for those with a bulbar onset. It also extends the time before a person needs ventilation support. Riluzole does not reverse the damage already done to motor neurons, and people taking it must be monitored for liver damage (occurring in ~10% of people taking the drug).[60] It is approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE).

    Other treatments for ALS are designed to relieve symptoms and improve the quality of life for patients. This supportive care is best provided by multidisciplinary teams of health care professionals working with patients and caregivers to keep patients as mobile and comfortable as possible.


    漸凍人仍有完全的知覺、記憶,神智是十分清楚的,但相對得十分煎熬,如同被囚禁在無法伸展的牢房當中般痛苦,目前偶發性的發病原因仍不明,可能與重金屬中毒、自體免疫系統、雷擊、輻射汙染等因素有關,而約有 10% 的病人是因為家族遺傳所造成,已發現致病的基因突變亦十分多樣。

    這樣子的回答方式 我是認為很不好. 就好像在考試,每個人都在競爭 比一比 誰寫得最多 最完善 最討發問者的 喜愛. 甚至於 明明知道 發問者花一分鐘 就可以 在網路上找到的 資訊 都拷上再說.

    有些甚至於您您您 說不完 參考指正 不才 小弟小妹 都用上了

    有點像是在知識圈裡 對就是對 錯就是錯 不分女男 老少 資格 的嗎?

    只要 就事論事 不用髒話 不罵人 那些 舊社會 黑5類 資產階級 的謙虛詞語

    我認為 最好的回答 都是有"漏洞"的回答

    讓發問者自己能夠去思考 找出漏洞 來反駁 來挑戰 與補足

    知事長與大師們! 不是嗎?

    難道你們從小愛考試 愛高分 就這樣麻木了嗎?

    互動回應式 的教導方式 才比較好吧?
