The ALS Network provides the most accurate and up-to-date resource for information on both federally and privately funded clinical studies focusing on ALS and other similar motor neuron diseases. We utilize the information from ClinicalTrials.gov, a division of the National Institute of Health.
ClinicalTrials.gov is a website and online database of clinical research studies and information about their results. It is a place to learn about studies from around the world, and to provide information about clinical research to the public, scientific community, and health care professionals.
You can locate both interventional trials, which examine if an experimental treatment is effective and safe under controlled environments, and observational trials, which examine people in more natural environments to collect information about their disease without giving an intervention.
How to Use the Clinical Trial Search
To search for an enrolling observational or interventional (drug) clinical trial in your area:
- Visit ClinicalTrials.gov
- Enter “ALS” in the Condition or disease section.
- All fields are optional, but you can add more information like other terms, location, intervention/treatment.
- To use an advanced search, use the “More Filters” drop down.
- Click “Search.”
This will list all currently enrolling clinical trials in your area that are testing a drug. Using the Advanced Trial Search tab, you can further narrow down trials by selecting additional criteria.
