ALS National Registry
The National Registry (run by the Center for Disease Control's Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry) is a national database of information from patients and families designed to speed the search for effective ALS treatments.
By compiling a large database of information, the ATSDR hopes to learn more about the incidence and prevalence of ALS, how the disease develops, and what types of treatments and interventions are beneficial.
Patients and/or their caregivers are encouraged to register and fill out short surveys about their and their families’ health histories, their military background, as well as environmental, occupational and other exposures.
