This will be an open label treatment extension phase in patients with ALS who have previously participated in the double blind, placebo-controlled ALS-TAL-201 study. This study will make talampanel treatment available to all subjects who completed the double blind placebo-controlled phase of ALS-TAL-201 study and where the investigator and patient consider it to be in the patient's interest to receive talampanel 50mg three times daily (tid). It will also enable the exploration of long-term safety and tolerability of talampanel 50mg tid.

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy, tolerability and safety of oral administration of talampanel compared to a placebo in subjects with ALS.
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...

The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy and confirm the safety of E0302 in patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) by assessing changes in scores of survival rat...
There are no reliable biomarkers that could evaluate the disease burden in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Knowledge about the metabolic states of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) may provide a therapeutic approach.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a debilitating neurologic disorder with poor survival rates and no clear biomarkers for disease diagnosis and prognosis.
The development of biomarkers for use in diagnosing, monitoring disease progression and analyzing therapeutic trials response in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is essential.
To compare the molar bite force, electromyographic activity, chewing efficiency and thickness of the masseter and temporalis muscles in individuals with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and healthy...
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).
