This week, Mike and Jeremy dig into the latest development out of Amylyx Pharmaceuticals, which recently announced findings of a phase 2 clinical trial of AMX0035, a drug compound shown to be safe and clinically effective at slowing down disease progression. They are joined by Dr. Neil Thakur, Chief of Mission at The ALS Association, and Dr. Jinsy Andrews, the Director of Neuromuscular Clinical Trials at Columbia University's Irving Medical Center and a member of The ALS Association’s Board of Trustees to discuss the safety and effectiveness of AMX0035 and how to work with Amylyx and the FDA to make this drug available to people living with ALS as soon as possible.
