The ALS center, national reference with Montpellier University Hospital, supports patients since 1988, it is also very active in research on the causes of the disease and treatments for the future.
We hope you find here the information you need on the different aspects of ALS, or motor neuron disease.
We discuss in this site the signs and evolution of the disease, its treatment, its causes, the various adaptations that can be envisaged, what to do or not to do, the social approaches, the research and the perspectives resulting from the scientific advances. .
Thank you for letting us know what is missing for us to progress in the service we want to give to patients and their families.
La paralysie progressive des muscles respiratoires va provoquer une diminution de la capacité respiratoire, une difficulté à tousser et à expectorer. Ceci aura un impact sur le pronostic vital du patient.
Pour palier aux troubles respiratoires, l'utilisation d'une ventilation non invasive (VNI) peut-être nécessaire.
