Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a neurodegenerative disease that leads to motor weakness. There is no cure, and treatment focuses on slowing down progression, which is achieved by a multidisciplinary approach. Hence, it is vital to understand the population needs for an optimal management of the disease.

To assess the efficacy of tirasemtiv, a fast skeletal muscle troponin activator, vs. placebo in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
The aim of this study was to adapt the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Assessment Questionnaire (ALSAQ), developed for the evaluation of quality of life in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients, ...
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a degenerative motor neuron disease with a strong neuroinflammatory component. This review summarizes how the connection between neurodegeneration and the immune...
Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) has been used to identify neurodegeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) through qualitative gross visual comparison of signal intensity. The aim of thi...
Upper and lower motor neuron signs are required for the diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The detection of upper motor neuron signs is key for the diagnosis, as quite a few patients with amy...
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...
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...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine specific clinical features, molecular abnormalities, and laboratory-based biological markers of free radical stress that are associated with amyotrophic lateral...
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a kind of motor neuron degeneration disorder without effective therapy. This registered cohort study will provide further insights into the clinical ...
This study will identify living veterans with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) through a national registry that is being developed. Diagnosis of ALS will be verified by study neurologi...
A glutamate antagonist (RECEPTORS, GLUTAMATE) used as an anticonvulsant (ANTICONVULSANTS) and to prolong the survival of patients with AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS.
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.

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.
A widely-expressed protein of approximately 400 to 500 amino acids. Its N-terminal region (DENN domain) interacts with RAB GTP-BINDING PROTEINS and may regulate AUTOPHAGY, as well as PROTEIN TRANSPORT to ENDOSOMES. Expansion of the GGGGCC hexanucleotide repeat in the first intron of the C9orf72 gene is associated with FRONTOTEMPORAL DEMENTIA with AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (FTDALS1).
