Submitter Supplied Information

A consistent clinical feature of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is the sparing of eye movements. Pathological studies have confirmed that there is relative sparing of the cranial motor nuclei of the oculomotor, trochlear and abducens nerves, although pathological changes resembling those seen in anterior horn cells are present to a lesser degree. The aim of the present study is to combine LCM and microarray analysis to study the differences between motor neurons that are selectively resistant (oculomotor neurons) and those that are vulnerable (lumbar spinal motor neurons) to the disease process in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
