BACKGROUND Charcot-Marie-Tooth type 1A disease (CMT1A) is a rare orphan inherited neuropathy caused by an autosomal dominant duplication of a gene encoding for the structural myelin protein PMP22, which induces abnormal Schwann cell differentiation and dysmyelination, eventually leading to axonal suffering then loss and muscle wasting. We favour the idea(More)
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A) is the most common inherited sensory and motor peripheral neuropathy. It is caused by PMP22 overexpression which leads to defects of peripheral myelination, loss of long axons, and progressive impairment then disability. There is no treatment available despite observations that monotherapeutic interventions slow(More)
Alzheimer disease (AD) represents a major medical problem where mono-therapeutic interventions demonstrated only a limited efficacy so far. We explored the possibility of developing a combinational therapy that might prevent the degradation of neuronal and endothelial structures in this disease. We argued that the distorted balance between excitatory(More)
CMT1A is the most common inherited peripheral neuropathy. There is currently no approved treatment. We performed a meta-analysis including four randomized, double-blind, Placebo-controlled clinical trials to assess the disease progression after one year under Placebo, Ascorbic Acid (AA) or PXT3003, a combination of three repurposed drugs. We observed a weak(More)
The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Neuropathy Score (CMTNS) was developed as a main efficacy endpoint for application in clinical trials of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A). However, the sensitivity of the CMTNS for measuring disease severity and progression in CMT1A patients has been questioned. Here, we applied a Rasch analysis in a French cohort of(More)
Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error due to a typographical error in the computer code used. This meant the percentage improvement over baseline of the endpoints CMTNS, ONLS, 9HPT and DML was slightly increased. Therefore some of the values in Tables 3, 4, Additional file 4: Table S4 and Fig. 4 are incorrect. However(More)
