ALS unit, Hospital La Paz- Carlos III Madrid

De ALS Unit van Hospital La Paz-Carlos III in Madrid en FUNDELA, de Spaanse Stichting voor onderzoek naar ALS, zijn partners van Project MinE en hebben zich tot doel gesteld het DNA van 750 mensen te analyseren. Wanneer het project in Spanje goed verloopt kan dit doel in de toekomst zelfs verhoogd worden naar 1.000 DNA profielen.

De ALS Unit in Madrid, deel van het La Paz Universiteitshospitalencomplex, is de oudste en grootste ALS unit in Spanje. De Unit levert integrale gezondheidszorg voor ALS patiënten in heel Spanje en experimentele behandelingen door klinische onderzoeken. De unit doet, vaak samen met andere Europese onderzoekscentra, onderzoek naar biomarkers, genetische oorzaken, kwaliteit van leven, voortgang van de ziekte, enz., en is ervan overtuigd dat de oorzaak van ALS gevonden kan worden door internationale samenwerking in studies zoals Project MinE.

          Carlos Matallanas

          journalist and semi-professional football player

          Carlos Matallanas (Madrid, 18-4-1981) was balancing his career as a journalist with his activities as a semi-professional football player when, in June 2014, he was diagnosed with ALS. From that moment on, he has devoted his efforts to the search of a cure for this neurodegenerative disease.

          Through his blog, Mi batalla contra la ELA (My struggle against ALS), he is determined to raising awareness on the degradation of the body as a consequence of ALS, a disease that could affect any of us. Carlos Matallanas has pinned his hopes on Project MinE, raising funds through the FUNDELA foundation and, with the help of friends and family, organizing multiple events.

          “The funds raised are not for me, they’re for all of us, for those that are already sick as well as for those that have not yet been affected by this terrible lottery that is ALS”

In 2007 he joined the Sports section of El Confidencial. In 2014, at the age of 33, being coordinator of the section and still as an active player, he is diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a serious neurodegenerative disease.
