The National Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Registry

The purpose of this registry is to (A) better describe the incidence and prevalence of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in the United States;(B) examine appropriate factors, such as environmental and occupational, that may be associated with the disease; (C) better outline key demographic factors (such as age, race or ethnicity, gender, and family history of individuals who are diagnosed with the disease) associated with the disease; and (D) better examine the connection between ALS and other motor neuron disorders that can be confused with ALS, misdiagnosed as ALS, and in some cases progress to ALS.
