Very late-onset amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in a Portuguese cohort.

Although amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) incidence has been stable among Western countries, population-ageing effect will probably increase the proportion of very-old ALS patients. We aim to study...

Fasciculation intensity and disease progression in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

To investigate the association between the frequency and intensity of fasciculations with clinical measures of disease progression in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Cortico-efferent tract involvement in primary lateral sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: A two-centre tract of interest-based DTI analysis.

After the demonstration of a corticoefferent propagation pattern in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) by neuropathological studies, this concept has been used for in vivo staging of individual patie...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in Nordland county, Norway, 2000-2015: prevalence, incidence, and clinical features.

There are some indications of increasing incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Awareness of cognitive impairment in ALS has increased in recent years. We describe the epidemiology and clin...

Study to Evaluate the Safety & Efficacy of FLX-787-ODT to Treat Fasciculations in Tongue and Upper or Lower Extremity Muscles Most Affected in Subjects With ALS

The FLX-787-106 study will determine how well FLX-787-ODT works to reduce fasciculations in patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The study will measure how often fasciculatio...

Study to Evaluate Safety & Efficacy of FLX-787-ODT to Treat Fasciculations in Tongue and Appendicular Muscle in Adult Subjects With ALS

The FLX-787-107 study will determine how well FLX-787-ODT works to reduce fasciculations in patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The study will measure how often fasciculatio...

Muscle Ultrasound: A New Tool for Measuring Progression in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

This is a study in patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). We will use muscle ultrasound as a tool to try and see if there are changes in muscle size that can find out how fast...

Therapeutic Treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

The goal of this study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of allogeneic Wharton's jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells administration in the individuals with diagnosed amyotroph...

Edinburgh Cognitive and Behavioural Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Screen in Norway: A Validation Study

Cognitive impairment is present in about 30-50% of the patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Suitable screening tools are available, but none of these are evaluated in a Norwe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A glutamate antagonist (RECEPTORS, GLUTAMATE) used as an anticonvulsant (ANTICONVULSANTS) and to prolong the survival of patients with AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS.

A motor neuron disease marked by progressive weakness of the muscles innervated by cranial nerves of the lower brain stem. Clinical manifestations include dysarthria, dysphagia, facial weakness, tongue weakness, and fasciculations of the tongue and facial muscles. The adult form of the disease is marked initially by bulbar weakness which progresses to involve motor neurons throughout the neuroaxis. Eventually this condition may become indistinguishable from AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS. Fazio-Londe syndrome is an inherited form of this illness which occurs in children and young adults. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1091; Brain 1992 Dec;115(Pt 6):1889-1900)

A superoxide dismutase (SOD1) that requires copper and zinc ions for its activity to destroy SUPEROXIDE FREE RADICALS within the CYTOPLASM. Mutations in the SOD1 gene are associated with AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS-1.

Diseases characterized by a selective degeneration of the motor neurons of the spinal cord, brainstem, or motor cortex. Clinical subtypes are distinguished by the major site of degeneration. In AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS there is involvement of upper, lower, and brainstem motor neurons. In progressive muscular atrophy and related syndromes (see MUSCULAR ATROPHY, SPINAL) the motor neurons in the spinal cord are primarily affected. With progressive bulbar palsy (BULBAR PALSY, PROGRESSIVE), the initial degeneration occurs in the brainstem. In primary lateral sclerosis, the cortical neurons are affected in isolation. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1089)

A Poly(A) RNA-binding protein that negatively regulates EGFR ENDOCYTOSIS. An increased risk for developing AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS 13 is observed in patients who have more than 23 CAG repeats in the ATXN2 gene coding sequence. Larger CAG expansions in the ATXN2 gene occur in SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA 2 patients.
