    Research Abstract

    TRICALS is the international, online platform for people with ALS. Together with ALS centres and the pharmaceutical industry people with ALS will stand together to find a better treatment for this devastating disease. Currently it takes a considerable amount of time before potential ALS medicines are brought to the clinical trial-phase and a trial is started. This causes unnecessary delays in the search for an ALS treatment and in bringing potential treatments to people with ALS.
    TRICALS’ main goal is to speed up clinical trials and to increase the number of ALS trials. This will increase our chance of finding a better treatment for ALS.
