In recent years, researchers have expanded their understanding of the link between genetics and ALS as they’ve searched for new approaches to advancing the care of patients living with ALS.3
The race to understand the concept of genetic ALS began before anyone even called it by that name. In 1993, mutations in the SOD1 gene were first established as a genetic link to ALS.4 The pace of discovery has accelerated since then.
Genetic testing can be considered in patients with a diagnosis of ALS as it may provide a better understanding of the basis of their condition.3,5 Learn more about the potential benefits and risks of genetic testing.
Supporting patients living with ALS involves providing guidance and information on the progression, impact, and potential cause(s) of the disease, as well as discussing options, such as genetic testing, counseling and the possibility of clinical trial enrollment.1,3,6,7
