Clinical Trials

If considering participating in research or a drug trial, you can find information about current research studies worldwide at the following websites: (National ALS Association): Click on the “Our Research” link in the black bar across the top of the page and select “Clinical Trials” along the left sidebar. (U.S. National Institutes of Health): Registry of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. Gives information about a trial's purpose, who may participate, locations, and phone numbers for more details for information about ALS-specific trials. With help from the ALS Association, NEALS provides up-to-date information for finding both federally and privately funded clinical studies  focusing on ALS and motor neuron diseases. You can locate both interventional trials, which examine if treatments are effective and safe under controlled environments, and observation trials, which examine people in more natural environments.

Make note of trials you are interested in to discuss with your ALS physician.
