Mrs. Jin is a Chinese female patient suffering from motor neuron disease (ALS). She received 1st round stem cell treatment in our hospital in June, 2006.

Before the 1st round stem cell treatment:
- Her speech speed was slow, her speech was slurred, but she had no problem of swallow ability;
- The muscle strength of her upper limbs was weak, she could not lift up her upper limbs during sitting, she could not perform many fine movements, for example, unbinding the buttons;
- The muscle strength of her lower limbs was weak, the flexibility of her lower limbs was poor, the muscular tension of her lower limbs was high, she felt stiffness of her limbs, so that to walk difficultly, the dorsal flexion ability of her both feet reduced.

During the next 1 year after the 1st round stem cell treatment, her medical condition was stable without aggravation:
- The muscular tension of her lower limbs was more decreased than before, the stiffness of her whole body was disappeared, she could walk without any difficulty, she could walk for a longer distance, she could go upstairs and downstairs freely;
- Her speech was clear;
