The ALD pages now states that the substance does show significant benefit. The page needs to be updated. I may do it later. JFW | T@lk 18:46, 28 July 2005 (UTC)

I agree. I am not qualified to update the page to come into line with current research but I'd help verify any citations. I also feel that some brief summary of the genesis of the oil is needed on this page. I know the link to the arctile on the movie covers this but it needs to be here in brief.

I subtracted "short chain" from the description because neither oleic (18) or erucic (22) can be considered "short". Short chain seems to be shorter than 10. Oleic is considered long, I thought.Bipedia 03:32, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

Not updated often. Yeah I don't know much about the subject but in the article it says "Most recently, Aubourg has reported success with transplant of the ALD gene, using HIV virus as the vector." From my viewpoint it seems the person now has ALD and HIV. I must be reading it wrong but if anyone sees this will they please explain?Spinningfox (talk) 18:46, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

It says most insurance companies won't pay for Lorenzo's oil. Which ones will? That's what I'd like to know. There ought to be some kind of a fund set up so that poor families can get this stuff free or cheap. --Bluejay Young (talk) 02:19, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

The article mentions the competitive inhibition of fatty acid elongation by Lorenzo's Oil, but fails to mention the source. Well, This may just be the citation[1] the article needs, but I have no access to it, short of paying US$ 20. 23:56, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Clarification Needed in Article--Who Received Honorary Doctorate?[edit]

This article implies that the late Lorenzo Odone received the honorary doctorate from Univ. of Stirling--but the article on Augusto Odone (the father) says that he did in recognition of the research that allowed his son to survive for so much longer. The latter seems more plausible but which assrertiion is correct? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.174.246.169 (talk) 18:11, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
