RESEARCH: Clinical Trials

Patients interested in clinical trials may first look at for more information. This website has the most current information for clinical trials. Also, the page for each trial features locations of facilities. This would be the best resource for clinical trials, since our staff only knows site-specific information. There are many studies being conducted worldwide that are featured on Educational webinars and additional information regarding clinical trials are available through the Northeast Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Consortium (NEALS).

Another resource for clinical trials is the MDA/ALS Newsmagazine. There is a wealth of information covered in each volume of the newsmagazine.

For general information concerning the set-up of clinical trials, please visit the FDA website. This website provides a general overview of the Drug Review Process from the Food and Drug Administration.

If you are a patient interested in participating in clinical trials, but you have not yet been seen by a physician on our staff, please contact the front desk at 212-305-1319 to schedule an initial consultation. Since the study criteria differ from study to study, please make sure that you fax your medical record from your outside institution to our office. More information will be provided when you call to schedule the initial consultation.

If you are an existing patient interested in participating in clinical trials, please email for more information.
