European Network to Cure ALS (ENCALS)

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is the most common motor neuron disease, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is a devastating condition associated with degeneration of upper and lower motorneurons resulting in a fatal outcome within 1-5 years, with no significantly effective treatment available to date. ALS Centres in Europe have established ENCALS as a network to collaborate in their research for a cure of ALS.
