For anyone diagnosed with ALS, and who would like to participate in ALS research, it is recommended asking your neurologist about the benefits and safety associated with enrolling in a particular clinical research trial.
By enrolling in clinical research trials, people suffering from ALS will be able to help in the process of finding a cure for their disease, and the people who will later be diagnosed.
Another added benefit of participating in ALS research is the ability to be able to test new drugs beforehand with a ‘front seat' to potential new treatment. So ask your neurologist about participating, before you discard or accept any experimental medication.
