PrecisionMed, the leading commercial supplier of human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), has enrolled their first donor in the PrecisionMed Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Registry. The PrecisionMed ALS Registry is a source of biological samples for purchase, including CSF, DNA, and RNA collected from people with ALS. PrecisionMed hopes to enroll 2,000 donors. With funding from the ALS Association, the Northeast Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Consortium (NEALS) also provides free research access to a repository of CSF, blood, DNA, urine, serum and plasma collected from people with ALS. Both registries will be valuable for researchers, and hopefully will provide key insights that will lead to a discovery of a treatment and cure for ALS.
