CNN Special Investigations Unit to Air Report on Alternative Stem Cell Treatments for ALS and other Diseases

CNN’s Special Investigations Unit is expected to air a story about patients who seek alternative treatments for disease and the physicians who offer these treatments in the United States and internationally.

Lucie Bruijn, Ph.D., senior vice president of research and development of The ALS Association, was interviewed for this story and provides commentary on stem cell  therapies that patients undergo for Lou Gehrig’s Disease.  It is not expected that a person with ALS will appear on this report. This report may be followed by a longer report on CNN at a future date.

The Special Investigations Report is expected to air Monday, June 1 on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” at 7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.  This air date is subject to change without notice.  Check local listings for air time for this program in your area.  The CNN Special Investigations Unit website is located athttp://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/siu/
