Our Neuromuscular Center in Strasbourg is labeled National Rare Disease Center for Neuromuscular Disorders from 2005 and is composed of two teams:
– for adults (head: Dr Nadaj-Pakleza), attached to the Neurology Department,
– for children (head: Prof Laugel) attached to the Pediatric Department.
We provide a comprehensive care for children and adults with various types of neuromuscular disorders as spinal muscular atrophy, Steinert disease, myasthenia gravis, Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy, metabolic myopathies, limb-girdle muscular dystrophies, facio-scapulo-humeral myopathy, congenital myopathies, hereditary and dysimmune neuropathies.
Our Neuromuscular Center collaborates with several labeled research teams and is involved in many research projects (gene therapy in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and spinal muscular atrophy, clinical trials in myasthenia, mitochondrial disorders and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A).
