Familial Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (FALS) Study

The goal of this study is to identify families with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). In addition, the investigators will identify families with ALS who may be eligible for the pre-fALS study or a clinical trial of arimoclomol in SOD1 positive familial ALS. For details of these studies, see independent entries on clincialtrials.gov.

Participation in this study involves a telephone conversation in which the investigators will draw your family tree, identifying those relatives who have had or currently have ALS. The investigators would also like study participants to donate a blood sample for research purposes.
