ALS Center Karolinska

Karolinska Institutet

The Karolinska ALS Clinical Research Group is part of a tertiary center for ALS that provides multidisciplinary care to ALS patients from the Greater Stockholm region. The clinical team also offers second opinions for ALS patients coming from all Sweden and from abroad. ALS patients are seen in our two clinics, located both at Huddinge and Solna Hospitals, which belong to the Karolinska University Hospitals.

The research activities of the group are linked to the Karolinska Institute and cover epidemiological research, risk and prognosis studies, quality of life, and wet and dry biomarkers investigation. The Karolinska ALS Clinical Research Group also initiated the National ALS/MND Registry that collects data on ALS/MND patients from all Sweden, and the ALS Risc project that is an epidemiological study gathering data and samples from the greater Stockholm region. This work goes hand in hand with the ALS biobank in place, which allows for samples to be stored and used for research.

We are currently running several ALS clinical trials, in two specialized units. They are located at the Huddinge Hospital (Phase 1) and at the S-ASC Unit (Phase 2 and 3) in the center of Stockholm.
