Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis diagnostic index for earlier, more accurate disease diagnosis

Takeaway

  • Class 1 evidence that suspected amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) can be confirmed using the ALS diagnostic index (ALSDI).

Why this matters

  • There are significant delays in the diagnosis of ALS due to the absence of a pathological test and the need to observe progression before disease confirmation, limiting timely treatment.
