About Nemaline Myopathy
Nemaline Myopathy is a group of congenital, hereditary neuromuscular disorders that cause muscle weakness, generally nonprogressive, of varying severity where severe forms show up to 66% mortality rates before the age of two. It is considered one of the most severe muscle conditions of childhood. Currently no treatments or disease modifying therapies exist for nemaline myopathy and few potential candidate drugs have been identified.
