PLS Research Needs Your Help

Our Medical Advisor Dr. John K. Fink is investigating molecular processes that contribute to Primary Lateral Sclerosis (PLS) and Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (HSP).

At this time, he has a need for subjects with PLS for whom one or both parents are alive and able to participate.

His studies involve talking with you about your medical history and reviewing medical records. Depending on the results of this preliminary analysis, we may pursue genetic studies (requires a blood sample) and a skin biopsy (performed under local anesthesia).

If you are interested in participating or would like more information please contact Sandy Wilcock, RN at wilcock@umich.edu or at (734) 936-8173.
