Significant research milestones made by the ALS Association include the groundbreaking discovery of the ALS gene SODI, responsible for 20% of all inherited ALS cases; the 2009 discovery of ALS6, a new gene responsible for about 5% of all inherited ALS cases; and initiating the first clinical trial of ISIS-SODI, a new drug that specifically targets the SODI gene.
In one of the most significant breakthroughs in the recent history of ALS research, a consortium of scientists organized and funded by The ALS Association (ALSA) has discovered a new gene, ALS6, that is responsible for about 5% of the cases of inherited ALS.
About ALS6 The mutations in the ALS6 gene were identified by detailed genetic sequencing in several families with an inherited form of ALS (familial ALS).
