Showing All Ongoing CReATe Studies
The purpose of the Clinical Procedures to Support Research in ALS (CAPTURE-ALS) study is to utilize information collected in the medical record to learn more about a disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and related disorders.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other related neurodegenerative diseases, including frontotemporal dementia (FTD), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP), progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) and multisystem proteinopathy (MSP). More precisely, the investigator wants to identify the links that exist between the disease phenotype (phenotype refers to observable signs and symptoms) and the disease genotype (genotype refers to your genetic information). The investigator also wants to identify biomarkers of ALS and related diseases.
Closed to Recruiting
The purpose of the St.A.R. 2 study (Study of ALS Reversals 2: Genetic Analyses) is to try to understand why reversals of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and primary muscular atrophy (PMA) take place. The study will be enrolling patients with ALS and/or PMA reversals to give saliva samples in order to determine if the ALS or PMA reversal is because of certain changes in the genetic code.
This study, being conducted under the auspice of the CReATe Consortium, will enroll patients with ALS and related disorders as well as healthy controls, with the goal of facilitating clinical validation of leading biological-fluid based biomarker candidates that may aid therapy development for patients with ALS and related disorders.
