  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Hereditary TTR amyloid polyneuropathy
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP)
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Charcot Marie Tooth disease (CMT)

Additional research studies covering the breadth of neuromuscular disease are also in development.
