Intrathecal Autologous Adipose-derived Mesenchymal Stromal Cells for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

The Goal of the Proposed Study is to perform an open label, 60 subject, Phase II multi-site clinical trial to investigate the safety and efficacy of intrathecal treatment of aaMSCs in ALS. Patients will be treated with 1 x 10^8 aaMSCs every 3 months for a total of 4 intrathecal ...

Phase

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and the Innate Immune System

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, deadly, neurodegenerative disease which affects the upper and lower motor neurons. This leads to profound muscular dystrophy, hyperreflexia, fasciculations and paresis of the bulbar as well as the skeletal musculature. ALS causes increasing physical fatigue and the patients soon become bedridden and respiratory ...

Phase N/A

Epidemiology and Genetics of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in the French West Indies

The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive muscular paralysis due to degeneration of motor neurons in the primary motor cortex, corticospinal pathway, brain stem and spinal cord. The incidence is estimated at 2/100 000 per year and prevalence at approximately 4/100000. Various clinical forms are ...

Phase N/A

Treatment Effect of Edaravone in Patients With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease that causes the death of 30,000 affected individual every year. Complex nature and unknown pathogenesis of this disease are 2 major reasons for failure of therapeutic interventions. Edaravone is a free radical scavenger that slows down functional decline and prevents from disease ...

Phase

ALS Study Determining Various Biomarkers and Strength Comparison After Exercise

The purpose of this study is to determine the muscle strength of a muscle in the thigh after 12 weeks of home exercise.

Phase N/A

F 18 T807 Tau PET Imaging in Familial Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate tau distribution in the brain of subjects with: ALS caused by different genetic mutations, any mutation carriers (with or without symptoms), any non-mutation carrier, any sporadic FTD, normal controls.

Phase

Genetic Study of Familial and Sporadic ALS/Motor Neuron Disease Miyoshi Myopathy and Other Neuromuscular Disorders

Participants will be asked to provide a blood sample and to complete a couple of questionnaires regarding their overall medical health and some environmental risk factors. Medical records will be requested for all those diagnosed with one of the study diseases to allow the researchers to review details of their ...

Phase N/A

Prognostic Value of a Diaphragmatic Endurance Test in Patients With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease which involves respiratory muscles and can lead at short term to respiratory failure. The occurrence of respiratory failure is associated with morbidity and an increased mortality. To date, respiratory muscle weakness is predicted from the reduction of vital capacity, maximal inspiratory force, ...

Phase N/A

Rehabilitative Trial With tDCS in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a motor neuron disease, which is a group of neurological disorders that selectively affect motor neurons, the cells that control voluntary muscles of the body. The disorder causes muscle weakness and atrophy throughout the body due to the degeneration of the upper and lower motor ...

Phase N/A

Neuroinflammation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis - Mechanisms and Therapeutic Perspectives: a Translational Pilot Study Among ALS Patients

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is the most common motor neuron diseases. It is considered as a rare disease with a prevalence of about 8 per 100,000 persons. Initiating in mid-life by progressive paralysis, it evolves rapidly into a generalized muscle wasting that leads irrevocably to death within 2 or 5 ...
