Genetic Study Finds Novel CMT-linked Mutations

New genetic analysis tools identified previously unknown genetic mutations in people diagnosed with various types and subtypes of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, a study reveals. The new techniques used to discern different genes and rare variants may enable researchers to improve detection rates of this neuropathic disorder. The study, “Cohort Analysis of 67 Charcot-Marie-Tooth Italian Patients: Identification of New Mutations and Broadening of Phenotype Expression Produced by Rare Variants,” was published in the journal Frontiers in…
