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 ...

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 ...

Derivation of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells From an Existing Collection of Human Somatic Cells

The potential to reprogram somatic cells into an embryonic state raises multiple basic research questions related both to the process of reprogramming and the properties of iPS cells. We will use various approaches to study the molecular mechanisms and processes that occur during reprogramming. We will use various experimental systems ...

Genetics of Pediatric-Onset Motor Neuron and Neuromuscular Diseases

Diseases affecting the motor unit--which is composed of the motor neuron, its myelin sheath and its innervated muscle fibers--are a diverse, heterogeneous group having heterogeneous clinical presentations and genetic causes. Many of these disorders have a inherited component. In some cases, the genetics underlying a given neuromuscular/motor neuron disease, like ...

Phase N/A

Physiological Flow of Liquids Used in Dysphagia Management

This research study will measure swallowing function in individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Parkinson's disease. The aims of this study are to (1) identify parameters of swallowing physiology that are associated with impaired swallowing safety and efficiency, and (2) explore how liquid thickness influences swallowing function. Participation in this ...

Phase N/A

CC100: Phase 1 Multiple-Dose Safety and Tolerability in Subjects With ALS

Primary objective: to assess the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of orally administered CC100 in subjects with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Secondary objectives: to determine pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of CC100 in plasma after single and after multiple doses; and to determine short-term effects of CC100 on potential blood-cell ALS ...

Chromatic Pupillometry to Assess the Melanopsin-Light Pathway in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

In 1963, Richardson, Steele and Olszewski published a landmark clinical report on 8 cases of supranuclear ophthalmoplegia, pseudobulbar palsy, nuchal dystonia and dementia and established the syndrome of heterogeneous system degeneration as a clinicopathological entity now known as PSP. The disease has a characteristic onset in the sixth decade (range ...

Phase N/A

Phase 1 Dose Escalation and PK Study of Cu(II)ATSM in ALS/MND

Multicenter, open-label, phase 1 study of Cu(II)ATSM administered orally to patients wit amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/motor neuron disease. The study will be conducted in three phases. In the first two phases, dose cohorts of six patients each will participate in a single dose pharmacokinetic study followed by a 28-day repeated daily ...

Phase

Investigation of the Epidemiological Factors Associated With the Development of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Investigation of the epidemiological factors associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in Israel with a view to future international collaboration. Particularly addressing:- Differences between ethnic subgroups Differences between immigrant and native-born populations Differences according to military service profile Clinical features gathered at each routine visit ,throughout the entire course of ...

Phase N/A

A Study to Evaluate the Performance of a Diagnostic Test in ALS

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a rapidly progressive, degenerative disease of motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord that leads to muscle atrophy and spasticity in limb and bulbar muscles. Clinical presentations of this fatal disease include weakness, loss of ambulation, oropharyngeal dysfunction, weight loss, and ...
