Endotherapia has a proposed mechanism that hinges on the ability of an isolated laboratory’s immunoblots to identify the cause and specific pathways that are driving ALS progression. In our opinion this ability has never been convincingly demonstrated. While there is a flawed animal study supporting the utility of Endotherapia in rats, such studies rarely translate into useful human treatments (29). The data on Endotherapia in PALS have so many problems that we believe they are uninterpretable. ALSUntangled does not recommend the use of Endotherapia for ALS at this time. A reasonable next step would be a study to validate the utility of the above-described immunoblots, ideally by a group without a potential conflict of interest.
