Edinburgh Cognitive and Behavioural Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Screen in Norway: A Validation Study

Screening of cognitive and behavioral impairment is a distinct recommendation in ALS-specific health-care. Thus, a rapid screening tool valid for use in Norway is urgent. However, cognitive assessment for patients with ALS can be difficult due to the complexity of cognitive impairment, as well as motor challenges with writing, drawing ...

Phase N/A

Edinburgh Cognitive and Behavioural Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Screen in Norway: A Prospective Cohort Study

Cognitive impairment is present in about 30-50% of the patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Screening of cognitive and behavioral impairment is a distinct recommendation in ALS-specific health care. However, knowledge in how cognitive impairment shall influence health-care professionals' information given to patients and in decision making is lacking. One ...

A Study to Evaluate Transplantation of Astrocytes Derived From Human Embryonic Stem Cells in Patients With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

This is a study of transplantation of Astrocytes derived from human embryonic stem cells, in patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). There will be no change in the routine ALS treatment of the patients enrolled into the study. Treatment will be administered in addition to the appropriate standard of care ...

Phase

Clinical Trial of Ultra-high Dose Methylcobalamin for ALS

To examine the clinical efficacy and safety of ultra-high dose (50mg, im, twice a week) methylcobalamin in retarding the progression of symptoms in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients, we enroll ALS patients diagnosed by revised-Awaji-El Escorial criteria within 12 months after the clinical onset. First they are followed for 12 ...

Phase

Lung Volume Recruitment Combined With Expiratory Muscle Strength Training in ALS

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of two treatment techniques called Expiratory Muscle Strength Training (EMST) and Lung Volume Recruitment (LVR) on breathing, swallowing, speech, and cough function in persons with mild to moderate ALS. Half of the participants will do EMST alone, and the other ...

T Cell Phenotypes in Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Influence of Vitamin D

ALS is a devastative disorder characterized by motor neuron degeneration. Median survival is 3 years after onset, but may vary from a few months to more than 30 years. Various factors have been suspected to play a role in such a variation, but recently, it has been described that regulatory ...

Phase N/A

Therapy in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis With Memantine at 20 mg BID (TAME)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that affects 30,000 Americans each year. Of these 30,000 Americans, it has been suggested that up to 50% will experience cognitive and behavioral changes in the form of frontotemporal dysfunction and up to 40% will meet criteria for frontotemporal dementia (FTD). ...

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 ...
