The CRESLA, which has a diagnostic neuropathology laboratory and a molecular genetics laboratory, is clinically based in the “Città della Salute e della Scienza” of Torino, the largest public hospital in Italy.
In the last decade, the CRESLA has participated to 5 large international randomized clinical trials on innovative drugs in ALS. The center is able to design and carry on both phase I-II and phase II trials, and includes a data manager and a statistical branch.
The centre has a multidisclinary group, with a daily ALS clinic, and utilizes the in-patient beds and the day hospital of the Department of Neuroscience. The centre includes a psychological and neuropsychological service. The centre has a neurophysiological service (EMG, motor evoked potentials) and collaborates with the Laboratory of Neuropathology and Neurobiology (located in the same Department) and the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Genetics (located in a nearby hospital).
