Many types of neuromuscular disease, such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), share similar symptoms. A new study, published by a research team from the University of Edinburgh, working with colleagues at UCL, Dundee University and the University of Cologne, has shown that these similar symptoms are likely caused by overlapping molecular mechanisms.
