International groundbreaking genetic ALS research

To understand the genetic basis of ALS and to ultimately find a cure for this devastating, fatal neuromuscular disease, Project MinE aims to analyse the DNA of at least 15,000 ALS patients and 7,500 control subjects. The resulting 22,500 DNA profiles will be compared.

    Introduction and launch of Project MinE

    The Netherlands ALS Centre has started a large-scale international landmark study into the genetic cause of the fatal disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Researchers in project MinE are collecting, examining and comparing as many DNA profiles as possible from ALS patients as well as from healthy volunteers. The study is being coordinated by the University Medical Centre (UMC)

    Participants and sponsors of the 2012 Amsterdam City Swim collected € 430,000 for phase 1 of project MinE. This means 220.5 DNA profiles can be analysed! The 2013 edition of the ACS took place on Sunday 8 September.

    Cycling and recycling for project MinE

    Cycle2TheMusic was very impressive! In the Royal Concert Hall, more than 600 people were cycling for 4 hours in order to raise awareness for project MinE. As a result, 16 DNA profiles will be granted to project MinE! And on top of that Coop (retailer in the Netherlands) organised a recycling campaign which resulted in 27 DNA profiles for project MinE as well. Thank you all for this impressive achievement!

    November 3rd the marathon of Terschelling was scheduled. Unfortunately, due to severe weather, it was canceled. However, Thomas de Vos was dedicated to run for project MinE. And therefore he ran the whole 42 kilometers in 3:45 hrs and raised 11,93 chromosomes for our research!

    Respect.
