Please join us for a presentation about the paper just published in Muscle and Nerve about the Centaur trial.
In partnership with The ALS Association, NEALS offers live webinars for people with ALS, caregivers, and the broader ALS community. Topics include updates on clinical trials, best practices for clinical care, and current research efforts in ALS causes and treatments. Our webinars also offer participants the opportunity to ask questions directly of the experts running clinical trials and conducting research activities.
In this session, Dr. Neil Thakur and Dr. Kuldip Dave from The ALS Association will talk about the implications of additional results from the Open Label Study of the CENTAUR trial for the ALS community. They will discuss The ALS Association's plans for helping the ALS community influence when AMX0035 might be approved for clinical use. Dr. Jinsy Andrews, NEALS co-Chair and Association Trustee, will moderate audience questions.
Presenters: Anne-Marie Wills, MD, MPH, Mansi Sharma, BS, and Jamie Garry, MS, RD, LDN from the Massachusetts General Hospital

The gut microbiome is the family of organisms that live inside our GI tracts. It is very clear that the gut microbiome plays a role in gastrointestinal diseases. Recently, evidence is emerging that the gut microbiome may play a role in driving ALS progression. Here we will review the microbiome, its role in gastrointestinal diseases, and the recent work linking it to ALS. We will highlight the next steps being taken to better understand whether and how manipulation of the microbiome might be undertaken to slow, stop or reverse ALS progression.
