Creating a world without ALS, together
Currently, less than 5% of patients participate in clinical trials. TRICALS aims to open clinical trials to all people with ALS – giving them and their loved ones the chance to make a meaningful contribution to ridding the world of ALS, forever.
The direct involvement of people with ALS is essential and urgent. Each person with ALS holds an important piece of the puzzle, and putting the puzzle together will help us to find new and more effective treatments. We believe that with our new approach, where we all work together, we can make the difference. We can turn ALS into a condition that is treatable. When we all work together, we can build a highway towards a cure.
Knowing that every patient is different and that ALS is a complex disease, we are not looking for a single solution. Therefore it is important to find precise treatments that suit the different forms of ALS that we have grown to understand through work such as our own Project MinE.
During Project Mine, we collected tens of thousands of DNA profiles, and realized that each patient holds a piece of the puzzle within themselves. This is why TRICALS collects and combines patient data. Based on the different types of ALS, clinical trial design can be expanded and improved, targeted more precisely, and carried out more quickly.
We have made significant progress in our understanding of ALS. However, this has been unacceptably slow and there remains much more to learn. We believe that with our new approach, when we all work together, we will find a cure for ALS.
