Association Française contre les Myopathies
Créée en 1958 par des malades et parents de malades, reconnue d'utilité publique en 1976, l'AFM - Association Française contre les Myopathies - vise un objectif clair : vaincre les maladies neuromusculaires, des maladies qui tuent muscle après muscle. Elle s'est fixé deux missions - guérir les maladies neuromusculaires et réduire le handicap qu'elles provoquent - et quatre axes prioritaires pour les maladies neuromusculaires : le développement des thérapeutiques, les actions vers les familles, la myologie et la revendication.

CMT France est une association sans but lucratif. Cette association de malades atteints de neuropathies périphériques, gérée par des malades ou des parents de malades, a pour buts de rompre l'isolement en regroupant les personnes atteintes de CMT et leur apporter aide et soutien ainsi qu'à leurs familles, de faciliter les échanges, apporter des témoignages, de les informer (grâce à la publication d'un bulletin trimestriel et sur ce site), de promouvoir la recherche...

CMTnet is a repository of information for research and treatment of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT). CMT is a hereditary progressive neuromuscular disorder that primarily effects the feet, legs and hands. CMTnet is intended to provide information for both the medical and non-medical communities.

CMT UK is a website of the support group for people who are affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, also known as Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy or Peroneal Muscular Atrophy.

CMTUS Foundation

CMTUS is for people with CMT, their families, and interested biotech, pharmeceutical, rehab, health care/medical professionals. CMTUS members develop a positive quality of life, provide affirmation, encouragement, inspiration, HOPE, empowerment, and practical suggestions. We share information gathered from the medical community but MOST IMPORTANTLY we share personal discoveries and insights that we've gained from living with CMT.

The ENMC is an international research support organization for neuromuscular disorders, and strives to facilitate communication amongst scientists and clinicians working in the area of neuromuscular disease.

We are a partner in the development of collaborative activities, ensure financial support for ENMC workshops and the Clinical Trial Network and offer organizational support from our offices in Baarn, The Netherlands and London, UK.

The ENMC facilitates top-level scientific collaboration with regard to several neuromuscular diseases including Spinal Muscular Atrophies, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Congenital Muscular Dystrophies, CIDP and many others.


The Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation (HNF) is a non-profit foundation dedicated to finding a cure for Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) while providing support and services for those living with CMT and their families.

Dutch Neuromuscular Research Support Centre (Network of all neuromuscular researchers in the Netherlands)

MuscleNET is a WEB facility, jointly sponsored by Telethon-Italy, the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Italy (UILDM) and the University of Padua. It is being developed and reviewed by the staff at the Laboratory of Human Genetics of the Department of Biology of the University of Padua.

MuscleNET provides information on neuromuscular disorders, cardiomyopathies and the recent advances of the scientific research on these subjects. Moreover MuscleNET contains a study companion in muscle biology and a set of useful links in this field.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency - a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans.

MDA combats neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services, and far-reaching professional and public health education. With national headquarters in Tucson, MDA has more than 200 offices across the country, sponsors 230 hospital-affiliated clinics and supports nearly 400 research projects around the world.

MDA supports more research on neuromuscular diseases than any other private-sector organization in the world. MDA scientists are in the forefront of gene therapy research and have uncovered the genetic defects responsible for several forms of muscular dystrophy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a form of amyotropic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease), childhood spinal muscular atrophy, and several other neuromuscular conditions.

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the only UK charity focusing on all muscular dystrophies and allied disorders.

It has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for over 45 years and provides practical, medical and emotional support to people affected by the condition.

Neurology channel
A clearinghouse for neurology news and information, neurologychannelMD gives physicians access to current CME, the latest procedural videos, discussion boards and more.

The Neuropathy Association is a public, nonprofit organization which was established by people with neuropathy and their families or friends to help those who suffer from disorders that affect the peripheral nerves.

ABMM Téléthon Belgique
Les trois objectifs fondamentaux du Téléthon Belgique: Soutenir la recherche scientifique et médicale en Belgique sur les maladies génétiques en général et les maladies neuromusculaires en particulier. Il s'agit de recherches axées sur la connaissance des maladies et sur la génothérapie. Soutenir les malades en Belgique pour, par exemple, l'achat d'aides techniques et les frais relatifs aux traitements ou analyses spécifiques non ou insuffisamment pris en charge par les pouvoirs publics (fauteuils roulants électroniques, lits électriques, adaptations informatiques, domotique, ...). Créer ou aider à créer en Belgique un ou des centres capables d'accueillir des personnes fortement dépendantes et/ou sous assistance respiratoire.

The Dutch Neuromuscular Diseases Association The Vereniging Spierziekten Nederland (VSN) is an active and dynamic Association of and for people with a neuromuscular disease. The VSN aims to protect the interest of its members. Its activities are aimed at information, mutual support and stimulating scientific research.
