What research is being done?

Ongoing research on CMT includes efforts to identify more of the mutant genes and proteins that cause the various disease subtypes. Other research aims to discover the mechanism of muscle atrophy and nerve degeneration, with the goal of developing ways to stop or slow these processes and develop therapies to reverse the damage. Additional research focuses on protein regulation and how the mitochondria, the cell's power plant, may play a role in nerve degeneration.
