Background and Brief Description On October 10, 2008, President Bush signed S. 1382: ALS Registry Act which amended the Public Health Service Act to provide for the establishment of an Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Registry. The activities described are part of the ongoing effort to maintain the National ALS Registry. First approved in 2010 for selfregistration, the primary goal of the surveillance system/registry remains to obtain reliable information on the incidence and prevalence of ALS and to better describe the demographic characteristics (age, race, sex, and PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 geographic location) of persons with ALS (PALS). Those interested in participating in the National ALS Registry must answer a series of validation questions and if determined to be eligible they can register. The secondary goal of the surveillance system/registry is to collect additional information on potential risk factors for ALS, including, but not limited to, family history of ALS, smoking history, military service, residential history, lifetime occupational exposure, home pesticide use, hobbies, hormonal and reproductive history (women only), caffeine use, trauma, health insurance, open-ended supplemental questions, and clinical signs and symptoms. After registration, participants complete as many as 16 voluntary survey modules, each taking five minutes (maximum 80 minutes). In addition, in Year 1, a disease progression survey for new registrants is completed at 0, 3, and 6 months. In Years 2 and 3, the disease progression survey is repeated at the yearly anniversary and at 6 months. For burden estimation, the number of disease progression survey responses per year has been rounded up to 3 times. A biorepository component is being added to increase the value of the National ALS Registry to researchers. As part of registration the participant can request additional information about the biorepository and provide additional contact information. A geographically representative sample will be selected to provide specimens. There are two types of specimen collections, in-home and postmortem. The in-home collection includes blood, urine, hair and nails. The postmortem collection includes the brain, spinal cord, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), bone, muscle, and skin. In addition to fulfilling the two-part Congressional mandate, the Registry is designed to be a tool for ALS researchers. Now that the Registry has matured, ATSDR will make data and specimens available to researchers. They can request access to specimens, data, or both collected by the National ALS Registry for their research projects. ATSDR will review applications for scientific validity and human subjects protection and make data/specimens available to approved researchers. ATSDR is also collaborating with ALS service organizations to conduct outreach activities through their local chapters and districts as well as on a national level. They will provide ATSDR with information on their outreach efforts in support of the Registry on a monthly basis. There are no costs to the respondents other than their time.
