The Senate health committee today recommended the establishment of a national surveillance system for neurological diseases.

The objective of the “Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act of 2015” (S. 849), sponsored by Sens. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., is to enhance and coordinate efforts to track the epidemiology of neurological diseases in the United States, such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. The bill provides for the collection and analysis of data on the incidence and prevalence of these diseases, as well as information pertaining to demographics, risk factors, diagnosis and disease progression markers.
