To participate in this study, patients will donate blood samples and agree to acupuncture treatments for approximately 8 weeks. A trained phlebotomist will schedule a time to come to your home to collect the blood samples each week, separate from your acupuncture appointments.
You will also be asked to complete up to 9 ALSFRS-R assessments. Additionally, we will collect medical records, including, but not limited to current medications, lab tests and surgical procedures, as well as a medical history.
Blood samples from participants will be used to look for potential biomarkers.
