  New online resource to help sufferers of rare degenerative disease

Photo of article A new multilingual website will provide extensive information for people suffering from a devastating type of motor neurone disease called ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), which kills most sufferers within three to five years of diagnosis. The new online resource is part of the EU-funded project MitoTarget, which is investigating the underlying causes of ALS. The team hope that the website will be the first port of call for anyone wishing to learn or share information about ALS, including doctors, nurses, patients and members of the public. MitoTarget received EUR 6 million under the Health Theme of the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
