Haven't been on here much for the past several months, so I just noticed this post.  Great news!  Every piece of the puzzle helps, so this progress is exciting.  My best childhood friend passed away from ALS nearly 2 decades ago.  He voluntarily took experimental treatments, hoping that it would ultimately benefit others, if not him.  If this news has reached Heaven, I'm confident that it made him smile.
