The ALS Association partners with the Northeast ALS Consortium (NEALS) to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information about both federally and privately funded ALS clinical trials and observational studies. People with ALS and their caregivers can speak directly with a NEALS ALS trial liaison by calling 855-437-4823 or emailing email@example.com. The liaison can answer your questions about participating in research and assist with finding and/or enrolling in a trial or study.
There are several other ways you can search for research opportunities, whether you are interested in participating or simply would like to get more information:
ClinicalTrials.gov is the largest database of privately and publicly funded clinical studies being conducted around the world. It is maintained by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and provides information about both interventional and observational studies for people with ALS, their family members and their caregivers.
ALS Signal is a search tool developed by I AM ALS that provides information about ongoing and upcoming clinical and observational research. The tool links to the ClinicalTrials.gov database for more information about each study.
ClinWiki has developed an ALS-specific search tool for both clinical trials and observational studies. You can narrow your search using various categories, such as ALS onset, breathing ability, remote monitoring, etc.
