What We Know About ALS

Little is known about what causes ALS and other motor neuron diseases. Current research suggests that both genetics and environment play a role in their development. Scientific research and clinical trials can help us to gain a better understanding so that we can find new and improved ways to treat these diseases. Visit our ALS Center to learn more.
