An Online Mindfulness Intervention for People With ALS and Their Caregivers

Quality of Life in people with ALS is not related to physical function, but is related to psychological, existential, and support factors. ALS caregivers demonstrate considerable burden and low QOL. It has been proposed by the investigators that it is time for the ALS field to develop "best practices" that ...

Phase N/A

BrainGate2: Feasibility Study of an Intracortical Neural Interface System for Persons With Tetraplegia

The goal of the BrainGate2 research and development project is to identify the core methods and features for a medical device that could allow people with paralysis to recover a host of abilities that normally rely on the hands.

Phase N/A

A Study to Evaluate Efficacy Safety and Tolerability of CK-2127107 in Patients With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Enrolled participants will be dosed with CK-2127107 150, 300, 450 mg or placebo twice daily (300, 600, 900 mg/day or placebo) for a period of 12 weeks.

A Clinical Trial of Pimozide in Patients With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease is a neuromuscular disease that results in rapid decline in normal muscle function and tone leading to difficulties with mobility, eating, drinking, breathing, sleeping, and communicating. The disease is progressive and no cure currently exists. Most people diagnosed with ALS succumb within ...

Phase

Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

During the course of ALS most patients develop swallowing deficits. In this pilot study we investigate if dysphagia in ALS can be improved by Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation (PES). PES is Communaut Europenne (CE-) certificated and has been approved for treatment of neurological, oropharyngeal dysphagia. During PES, electrical stimuli are applied ...

Phase

Natural History and Biomarkers of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia Caused by the C9ORF72 Gene Mutation

Objective The primary objective of this study is to characterize the natural history of disease in patients who carry a repeat expansion in the C9ORF72 gene, which causes amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD). The secondary objective is to assess whether candidate biomarkers correlate with disease progression. Study ...

Phase N/A

Genetics of Familial and Sporadic ALS

The investigators long term goals are to improve diagnosis and develop effective treatments that arrest or ameliorate symptoms of ALS, and possibly delay or prevent disease onset in individuals at risk for developing familial ALS (FALS). In order to do this one must understand how disease develops at a molecular ...

Phase N/A

Circulating Biomarker for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a rare disease with a worldwide incidence of 2-3 cases per 100,000 individuals/year and it is characterized by progressive neurodegeneration of motor neurons. When motor neurons degenerate the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. ALS manifests in two forms: ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of RNS60 on ALS Biomarkers

ALS is a rare neurodegenerative disease that affects motor neurons in the spinal cord, brainstem and motor cortex. The only drug showing to improve survival in patients with ALS is riluzole. However, the benefits of riluzole only consist in a three-month delay of death while disability and other outcome measures ...

Innovative Ultrasound Technology in Neuromuscular Disease

This study is utilizing ultrasound measurement to measure neuromuscular disease status in adult patients. The hypothesis is the by quantifying ultrasound data, it is possible that ultrasound can be utilized as a tool to determine if a disease is responding to therapy or progressing.
