The project has not delivered on its core mission well, and in the past few years the claim of success has been in an area of its scope creep.
Let's look at some facts.
This morning there were 76 open, recruiting clinical trials for ALS at clinicaltrials.gov.
Of those, 39 are interventional trials and the rest are observational.
Here is the list of the 25 total trials included in the ALS Registry's email notification in the last four years -- https://wwwn.cdc.gov/als/ALSResearchNotificationClinicalTrialsStudies.aspx .
Fact: Just seven (9%) of the 76 currently recruiting trials are in the CDC notification.
Fact: Just two (5%) of the 39 currently recruiting interventional trials are in the CDC notification.
Fact: This is not a success story.
