Research shows a potential, treatment for hereditary neuropathy; FPN Research Registry to help validate the findings!
Dr. Stephen Züchner, MD, PhD, of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, recently published a research paper that identified a new gene mutation that causes an autosomal, recessive peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Züchner’s team’s research shows that drugs approved for other diseases that target the SORD gene may show promise in treating common forms of hereditary neuropathies, including Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT).

The Foundation is eager to help Dr. Zuchner by providing him with biosamples from our PN Research Registry to validate his findings on mutations.
