Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota actively study possible causes of Lou Gehrig's disease. Research includes identifying biomarkers in blood and cerebrospinal fluid that may someday help to identify and monitor loss of motor neurons in ALS and aid in monitoring response to treatment. Research also includes identifying genes that may cause or contribute to the development of ALS. Researchers study potential new treatments for people who have ALS and ALS-related diseases and participate in clinical trials of potential new medications.
