Neuromuscular diseases encompass a wide variety of rare diseases with different etiologies, but all of them affect either motor neurons, neuromuscular junctions or muscles. Moreover, they cause disabling motor deficits and may even lead to death. The development of new therapeutic strategies for such diseases is a scientific and technological challenge.
The conference aims to explore this issue, not from a mono-pathological point of view, but rather an intersecting one, considering the different diseases of the motor unit. The furtherance of knowledge on these heterogeneous pathologies will open new perspectives on treatment.
Therapeutic innovations are based on pharmacological, cellular, gene, and physical therapies, that, when crossed or combined, may provide promising paths forward.
The conference will energize a discussion on the benefits and limitations of developing combinatory therapies for diseases affecting neuromuscular function
