Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a degenerative neurological condition that causes a loss in voluntary movement as the disease progresses. Every year, approximately 5,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS. To date, several drugs have been approved by the FDA to slow the progression of this disease however none of them can reverse the damage already caused by ALS or cure the condition.
Researchers around the world are working to change that. If you have been diagnosed with ALS and want to help, please consider participating in an ALS research study. Healthcare insurance is not required and you may be reimbursed for your time.
