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 ...

Phase N/A

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

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

Relationship Between Neurological Disability and Visual Impairment in Patients With ALS or Friedreich's Ataxia

All patients will be asked about their data and their general medical history, and will be underwent on one hand, a complete neurological examination including the degree of neurological impairment quantified according to the functional rating scale of ALS (ALSFRS-r) or Scale for the assessment and rating of ataxia (SARA); ...

Phase N/A

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

Accurate Test of Limb Isometric Strength (ATLIS) in ALS

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center will enroll and collect data on 100 subjects. Subjects will ideally be tested every 1 to 4 months according to each patient's site visit schedule. Subjects will be tested at each visit using ATLIS, the ALSFRS-R questionnaire and EIM.

Phase N/A

Imaging and BioFluid Biomarkers in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

In this trial, approximately 200 subjects will participate in this study from 2 Northeast ALS Consortium (NEALS) centers in the United States. Fifty (50) ALS participants will be age and gender matched to 50 participants with no known neurological disorder (healthy controls). Of these, twenty five (25) ALS participants will ...

Phase N/A

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

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 ...
