The “first treatable” form of CMT?
I wrote this brief article on the way the SORD gene works (or fails to work) for the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation. SORD mutations cause “the most common autosomal recessive form of CMT2 (CMT2A1), autosomal recessive intermediate CMT (CMTRIA), and the overlapping category of distal hereditary motor neuropathy (dHMN).”
The State of Research for Cures (2019)
The US-based CMTA (Charcot Marie Tooth Association) has a 12-year-old program called the Strategy to Accelerate Research (STAR) that is actively pursuing the causes and possible cures for CMT. STAR will cover nearly all CMT Type 1s and 2s, including types with as yet unidentified genetic causes.
