So far the only fda approved therapy for ALS is Riluzole but this only gives about seven months of symptomatic respite before progression again resumes.

ALS has been a very difficult disease to control, and sole medication approved by FDA remains Riluzole.
Although research proceeds, breakthroughs are tough to find.
