Non-invasive Brain Stimulation for the Treatment of Depression Symptoms in ALS: A Pilot Study

The objective of this study is to evaluate the role of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for symptom reduction of depression and cognitive loss among patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and other Neurodegenerative Diseases. Behavioral symptoms in ALS have been under scrutiny since its earliest descriptions, nearly 30 years ...

Phase N/A

The National Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Registry

The purpose of this registry is to (A) better describe the incidence and prevalence of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in the United States;(B) examine appropriate factors, such as environmental and occupational, that may be associated with the disease; (C) better outline key demographic factors (such as age, race or ethnicity, ...

Phase N/A

Phenotype Genotype & Biomarkers in ALS and Related Disorders

This study will recruit patients with ALS, ALS-FTD, PLS, HSP, and PMA, with a focus on incident cases. Patients with both familial and sporadic forms of these diseases will be enrolled and followed longitudinally using a standardized set of evaluations. Biological samples (blood, urine, CSF) will be collected from all ...

Phase N/A

SSRIs vs. TCAs for Depression in ALS Patients

This study is a 12-week, open-label, non-randomized, pilot clinical intervention trial. This is investigator initiated study.This trial will be done at St Louis University ALS clinic. ALS patients will be screened for depression using Beck depression inventory (BDI-II) scale. A mental healthcare provider will evaluate the patients scoring 19 or ...

Phase N/A

Non-invasive Ventilation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Using the iVAPS Mode

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is incurable, progressive, manifested by muscle weakness and wasting, and caused by degeneration of motor neurones. The limited data available suggest the incidence of ALS in Canada to be approximately 2 per 100,000 persons. The disease is characterized by progressive weakness ...

Phase N/A

Safety of Urate Elevation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal, neurodegenerative disease for which there is no cure. Multiple lines of evidence have implicated oxidative stress in the pathophysiology of ALS. Urate (uric acid) is an endogenous antioxidant system, and urate may serve as a major defense against oxidative stress. Urate has emerged ...

Phase

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 ...
