Title: Project 1

Project 1 (University of Tübingen)

Epidemiology and description of the natural course of metachromatic leukodystrophy and globoid-cell leukodystrophy (Krabbe disease) manifesting during childhood and adolescence

The knowledge about the clinical course even of genetically well characterized leukodystrophies is still insufficient. With the Instruments developed so far (clinical and MRI scores) this project will further pursue the description of late infantile metachromatic leukodystrophy patients and will extend the examinations to juvenile MLD patients. Scores are not only applied in ongoing clinical Phase I/II trials but will also be used to evaluate therapeutic effects of bone marrow transplantation in MLD patients. Furthermore they will be adapted to examine patients with infantile GLD.
