    I hope to get on the Phase 1 trial at the National Hospital for Neurology in central London. I was phoned by one of the doctors there yesterday. I plan to visit them in the next few weeks for an informal chat. This is indeed a big deal for those of us with the C9orf72 mutation. They are running 6 cohorts with 8 people in each. Cohort 1 is given a very low dose of drug, Cohort 2 gets a higher dose and so on. The cohorts run in series. The aim, as I understand it, is to assess people's tolerance to the drug.

    Thanks Ellie. I read all about it previously but forgot. Appreciate the reminder. I read it again. There's other research going on but no other to my knowledge for C9ORF72 in the world. I get the ALS news letters.

    I hope that the participants of this trial stay safe and the scientists can learn from it. Obviously I hope that it's the first of 3 associated trials and that it turns out to be a useful treatment but I'm keeping my feet firmly planted. Lynne

    This is early days but this along with the biogen SOD1 Trial are in my mind the key trials ongoing in the world today.

    Rock on!

    C9orf72 Gene Therapy Targeting Trial UK - Phase 1

    This is a big deal for some of our (favourite ) Forum Members.

    Phase 1 of its clinical trial started this week, so very early days, but it’ll be very interesting to see the trial results when published.
