Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a group of rare neurological diseases that mainly involve the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement. The disease is progressive, meaning the symptoms get worse over time. ALS belongs to a wider group of disorders known as motor neuron diseases caused by gradual deterioration (degeneration) and death of motor neurons. Motor neurons are nerve cells that extend from the brain to the spinal cord and muscles throughout the body. Messages from motor neurons in the brain (called upper motor neurons; UMN) are transmitted to motor neurons in the spinal cord and to motor nuclei of the brain (called lower motor neurons; LMN) and from the spinal cord and motor nuclei of the brain to a particular muscle or muscles. ALS can be either sporadic or genetic. The sporadic type is the most common and can affect anyone. The genetic or familial type is rarer. Common symptoms include painless, progressive muscle weakness. The first thing a person might notice is tripping more often, or dropping things because of the weakness. Slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and trouble breathing can occur.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Diagnosis
ALS is a difficult disease to diagnose. There is no one test or procedure to establish the diagnosis of ALS ultimately. It is through a clinical examination and a series of diagnostic tests, often ruling out other diseases that mimic ALS. The diagnosis of ALS relies on medical history, physical examination, electrodiagnostic testing (with needle EMG), and neuroimaging. Biomarkers can play a crucial role in diagnostic, prognostic, or predictive research studies. They could potentially become important for the stratification of patients and monitoring treatment effects in clinical trials. Genetic testing of the five most prevalent genes found to be mutated in ALS is routinely offered to patients with a positive family history (C9orf72, SOD1, TDP‐43, FUS, and TBK‐1).
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Epidemiology
The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmented by Prevalence of ALS, Diagnosed Prevalence of ALS, Gender-specific Distribution of ALS, Mutation-specific Distribution of ALS, Type-specific Distribution of ALS, Distribution based on Site of onset of ALS, Age-specific Distribution of ALS, in the United States, EU-4 (Germany, Spain, Italy,and France), the United Kingdom, Japan, and China market from 2019 to 2032.
- This section provides glimpse of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis epidemiology in the United States, EU- 4 (Germany, Spain, Italy, and France), the United Kingdom, Japan, and China
- The total diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS in the 7MM and China were 59,130 and 29,095 in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 1.3% and 0.6% respectively during the study period (2019–2032).
- Epidemiology assessed for the condition showed that the US, in 2021 accounted for approximately 25,817 diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS.
- Among the EU-4 and the United Kingdom countries in 2021, Germany had the highest diagnosed prevalent cases of ALS with 5,398 cases, followed by UK (4,561) and Italy (4,478). In contrast, Spain had the lowest cases (3,270) in 2021.
- Japan accounted for 11,183 diagnosed prevalent ALS cases in 2021.
- In the United States, in 2021, the proportion of male and female cases were 14,948 and 10,869 respectively.
- As per the analysis, a higher percentage of sporadic ALS was observed in the 7MM and China compared to familial ALS in 2021.
- ALS can be divided into C9ORF72, SOD1, FUS, others mutations (TARDBP, OPTN, ANG, etc.), and non-mutated/unidentified mutation based on the types of mutations causing the condition. In the United States, the number of cases of C9ORF72, SOD1, FUS, others mutations (TARDBP, OPTN, ANG, etc.), and non-mutated/unidentified mutation was 2,478, 749, 361, 2,189 and 20,039 respectively, in 2021.
- Japan accounted for approximately 3,892 cases of 70-79 years of age of ALS in 2021.
- In China, in 2021 the proportion of male and female cases were 17,948 and 11,146 respectively.
- In 2021, the patients with the spinal site of onset accounted for 21,035 cases, followed by 5,673 cases with the bulbar site of onset, and 2,386 cases with other uncertain regions in China.
