Research Registries and Neuromuscular Disease


Enrolling in a registry specific to neuromuscular disease will help individuals to be informed about clinical research regarding a specific disease or condition. In turn, disease registries will also aid researchers looking for qualified individuals to participate in research protocols.

In the U.S., the Rare Clinical Diseases Research Network (RCDRN) includes a contact registry for individuals with mitochondrial disease, inherited neuropathy including Charcot Marie Tooth disease, episodic ataxia, non-dystrophic myotonic disorders, and lysosomal storage disease including Pompe disease. Recently, the CMT North American Database merged with the Neuropathies Consortium at the RCDRN. The RCDRN website can be accessed at: http://rarediseasesnetwork.epi.usf.edu/index.htm .

The National ALS Registry began collecting information about individuals with ALS living in the U.S. in 2010. The U.S. government funds this registry. Goals include determining how many new cases of ALS are diagnosed each year (disease incidence) and how many people currently live with ALS at the current time (disease prevalence), as well as gaining a better understanding of the risk factors for ALS. More information can be found about the registry at their website: http://wwwn.cdc.gov/als/ .

The Muscular Dystrophy Association recently launched a new database focusing on individuals with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and spinal muscular dystrophy, and will expand this registry to include other diseases over time. Information for the registry will be collected on a voluntary basis through the MDA Clinics.

A few other registries for individuals with neuromuscular disease and their website addresses are listed below:
