The Sean M. Healey & AMG Center for ALS combines outstanding, multidisciplinary care with clinical and basic research informed by the needs of our patients. We are in the midst of dozens of innovative clinical trials that are accelerating the pace of discovery and making a meaningful difference in therapeutic options, even as we deliver compassionate care using age-old solutions, such as house calls, and new tools, such as telemedicine and digital monitoring tools. We believe strongly that every person with ALS should have treatment options and have built a clinical trial and expanded access program (compassionate use) to accomplish this mission. The Healey Center offers an Expanded Access Protocol (EAP) program, providing access to experimental treatments for people with ALS who are ineligible for clinical trials. The EAPs provide hope to people with ALS who need it most and allows scientists to collect safety and biomarker data that contributes to our understanding of these experimental agents in the later stages of ALS. Our goal is to raise $2 million a year to offer EAPs to 200 people each year across the US. We are determined to find the cures. Your support makes that possible.
