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

FA Clinical Outcome Measures

Friedreich's ataxia (FA) is a rare autosomal recessive degenerative disorder characterized by ataxia, dysarthria, sensory loss, diabetes and cardiomyopathy. The discovery of the abnormal gene in FA and its product (frataxin) has provided insight into possible pathophysiological mechanisms and novel approaches to treatments in this disease. While such methods for ...

Patient Registry of the European Friedreich's Ataxia Consortium for Translational Studies (EFACTS)

The EFACTS patient registry integrates prospectively and systematically collected clinical research data (e.g. clinical tests, demographical characteristics) with access to biological specimens (e.g. blood, urine) obtained from individuals with genetically confirmed FRDA and unrelated control research participants. The EFACTS patient registry started out as a 4-year study and is currently ...
