Since its discovery in the 19th century by Dr Charcot, there is still no cure  for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The syndromic nature of the disease represents many challenges that are limiting research and therefore the detection of therapies. However, fundamental and preclinical research have made significant progress that  allows us to establish better strategies in order to find an effective therapy. We’ll also talk about many current clinical trials that are targeting different aspects of the disease by using different strategies.
