Polyneuropathy in the Leonberger (LPN)

Ongoing project, contact: Prof. Cord Drögemüller

Leonberger

The inherited Leonberger polyneuropathy (LPN), represents a group of clinically similar, but genetically distinct diseases of the peripheral nervous system. Together with researchers from the University of Minnesota we identified the causative mutations for three different forms of LPN and offer genetic testing.
