Cured by Curcumin? Untangling another ALS X-file
Presenter: Richard Bedlack, MD, PhD, Duke ALS Clinic
Curcumin, one of the ingredients in tumeric and curry powder, has several biological effects that could be useful in treating ALS. There are 3 validated "ALS reversals" that occurred on curcumin, and there was even a "positive" clinical trial done in Iranian patients with ALS. This webinar reviews the interesting background science on curcumin and outlines a new patient-centric clinical trial of a particular form of it that will occur at Duke University in 2019.
