Genetic Testing and Counseling

Some of the most promising new therapies in the clinical trial pipeline target subtypes of ALS,  PLS and Parkinson’s Disease—either specific genetic subtypes or specific molecular markers. Every person living with these diagnoses—regardless of family history—should have the opportunity to understand their specific disease type to best inform their treatment options. 

Given the rapid pace of innovation in therapy development, a clinical trial may be the best treatment option for you, and genetic tests provide critical information to help you make that decision. Our genetic counselors work with our partner genetic labs to quickly get you the testing—as well as pre and post test counseling—you need to understand the genetic specifics of your disease. 

Since research is rapidly evolving, Synapticure and our partners will periodically re-evaluate your genetic test results alongside your medical history to provide you with updated clinical trials and other treatment options. Synapticure patients have already found previously missed genetic variants as a result of our care program that made them eligible for a currently enrolling clinical trial.

Synapticure Patient

I cannot thank you enough for what you have already done for my father; from your kindness with onboarding him, checking in with him, providing him with so many resources and getting him set up with genetic counseling so quickly. I will forever be grateful for the Synapticure Care Coordination team.

Synapticure Patient

“My care coordinator recommended that I look into a number of clinical trials to see if I would be a good candidate. She provided me with enough information that I felt comfortable approaching my Neurology team at my medical center about it, and we are currently investigating which would be the best fit for my current condition.”

Synapticure Patient

Thank you for persevering on my behalf [to refer me to an ALS specialist]. Your hope keeps me going! Thank you for being there for me.
