Biomarkers study adapted to allow people to provide samples from home
The ALS biomarkers study has recently been updated and now allows people to provide biosamples for research using simple at-home collection kits.
The study is recruiting patients with MND and other neurological conditions, as well as healthy individuals with or without a family history of MND. All study activities can now be completed entirely remotely (consent, questionnaires, providing biosamples using simple at-home collection kits), meaning that no visits to the study site are required.
This adaptation allows patients to take part in research regardless of whereabouts in the country they live, and reduces patient burden by not requiring them to travel to study sites.
