Researchers identify new genetic cause of a form of inherited neuropathy

Inherited mutations in a gene that keeps nerve cells intact was shown, for the first time, to be a driver of a neuropathy known as Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease. This finding is detailed in a study led by researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, which published in Neurology Genetics, an official journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
