  • ALS sub types linked to age and sex?

    Each research study or clinical trial gets us one step closer to understanding ALS. A better understanding of ALS , symptoms and sub types should help the medical field better address stopping the progression of the disease. In the article https://alsnewstoday.com/2020/04/06/age-sex-gene-mutations-strongly-influence-als-type-symptoms-study-finds/ the researchers looks at age, sex and genetic mutations to determine patterns of symptoms and sub types.  I found that the information regarding the SOD1 mutation, along with age and sex, described my family’s history of ALS to a “T.”  If you are a pALS (or your loved one is) with a genetic mutation, did the information in this article match the family’s history? What other factors do you think should be considered as research progresses in this area?
