The ALS Association, in partnership with ALS Finding a Cure and the Northeast ALS Consortium (NEALS), is pleased to announce $1 million in funding to support a new ALS clinical trial to test the efficacy of the experimental drug RNS60 in reducing inflammation that may hasten the disease process.
There have been a number of publications describing the important role of genetic counseling in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). While such attempts at guiding who should undergo genetic testing are welcome, they are put forth in a vacuum because there are no data on where ALS neurologists stand in terms of genetic testing and counseling for the disease, and in terms of what is considered to be familial and sporadic ALS.
