Clinical Trials and Registries

Researchers around the globe are constantly working on new ways to combat neuromuscular disorders. Before new treatments can go to market, they must first undergo a series of thorough tests called clinical trials. By participating in clinical trials, patients can potentially benefit from cutting edge treatments while contributing to important research.

Patient registries collect information from people diagnosed with a specific disease or condition. This information can be used to match them with a compatible clinical trial. In addition, patient registries provide researchers with the data they need to better understand neuromuscular disorders.
