The Pan-Asian Consortium for Treatment and Research in ALS (PACTALS) was established in December, 2014. The concept is similar to other regional existing Consortia namely the North-East Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (NEALS) in the United States and European Network for the Cure of ALS (ENCALS). PACTALS represents a large patient population and very active research groups in the Asia – Pacific region.
