Welcome on the website of the European Network for the Cure of 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.
