About Research + Trials

Research is at the heart of our mission. ALS Worldwide funds, facilitates and shares groundbreaking research that helps patients, families and others understand the disease’s causes, determine how to best slow its progression, and seek ways to cure ALS/MND. As challenging as it is, significant research is being devoted to symptom reduction, slowing disease progression and achieving greater stabilization while searching for a cure.

There are now as many as 100 genetic permutations known to affect ALS/MND and related diseases. Researchers, clinicians, scientists and neurologists remain totally committed.  In the past five years, research efforts have grown tenfold.  Being clear about what hasn’t succeeded is as important as identifying effective relief.  Breakthrough therapies, current human trials and future directions all offer hope.
