A research study conducted in mice affected by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a degenerative neuromuscular disease, shows that, after ingestion of an enriched with extra virgin olive oil diet, rich in unsaturated fatty acids, all of them show improvements in the engine and muscle behavior and increase their survival rate.

This study is the core of the doctoral thesis “Alteration of autophagy and its modulation by a lipid-rich diet in a live mouse model of ALS”, held at the research group of the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics (Lagenbio) in the University of Zaragoza.

The thesis was defended last Friday by Dr. Sara Oliván and has been addressed by researchers Ana Cristina Calvo and Rosario Osta.
