CHU Bretonneau

Our multidisciplinary team aims to provide care and support for patients and their families. Patients are routinely (every three months) seen by specialists in our team. Together with the NeuroCenter Network we coordinate medical, paramedical and social support at home for patients. We also take part in various research activities. These are directed to identify ALS risk genes, new biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis, and clinical studies to develop suitable treatments. Finally, we are setting up an ALS Registry in the Center Val de Loire.
