Biological Sample Collection for Research and Biobanking

Researchers at NYSCF study diverse diseases, conditions, and traits by creating "pluripotent" stem cells. These stem cells can become any cell in the human body, including cells that may be difficult, invasive, or even impossible to obtain directly. For example, researchers may create pancreatic insulin-producing cells to learn more about …

Phase N/A

Genetic Characterization of Movement Disorders and Dementias

Objective The objective of this study is to ascertain individuals with a clinical diagnosis of a movement disorder or dementia, their affected and unaffected family members, and unrelated, healthy individuals (to provide control samples); to characterize their phenotypes; and to identify and further characterize genetic contributions to etiology by collecting …

Phase N/A

Biomarkers of Synaptic Damage in Multiple Sclerosis

Blood and cerebrospinal fluid samples will be subjected to the procedures required for the isolation of the different components immediately after the withdrawal. Subsequently, the levels of microRNAs, cytokines, chemokines, cell growth factors, neuronal damage markers (tau, phosphorylated and truncated tau, neurofilaments) and mitochondrial (lactate) and free d-amino acids (Objective …

Phase N/A

Neurologic Stem Cell Treatment Study

Various clinical studies have registered with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study neurologic diseases and damage. There have also been a number of journal reports of the benefits of treatment with BMSC for diseases and damage to nervous tissue. The investigators hope to add to the volume of …

Phase N/A

Conservative Iron Chelation as a Disease-modifying Strategy in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

The alteration of iron metabolism is reported in animal models of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) as well as in sporadic and genetic forms (SOD1 and C9orf72) of ALS. The high iron concentration of the brain, due to its high energy demand (high oxygen consumption), makes motor neurons particularly vulnerable to …

Natural History and Clinical Features of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

With the development of supportive measures, the natural history of ALS has changed. Researchers compared the natural history of ALS patients from 1999-2004 and 1984-1998 and found that the median survival time was significantly longer in the former than in the latter (4.32 years vs. 3.22 years) and that the …

Phase N/A

HERV-K Suppression Using Antiretroviral Therapy in Volunteers With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Objective In this Phase I, proof-of-concept study, we aim to determine whether an antiretroviral regimen approved to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection would also suppress levels of Human Endogenous Retrovirus-K (HERV-K) found to be activated in a subset of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). We propose to measure …

Phase

Study of Predictive Factors of Progression of Motor Neurone Disease

This is a prospective observational multicentric French study of a cohort of 1000 ALS patients, 100 neurological controls and 200 healthy controls followed from the first signs to the end of the disease. The aim of the present study is therefore to determine the clinical, biological, imaging, and electrophysiological biomarkers …

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

A Study to Evaluate AP-101 in Familial and Sporadic Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Single ascending doses of AP-101 will be administered by intravenous (IV) infusion
