April-May 2010 Edition - MDS is proud to co-promote and feature a wonderful initiative of the Office of Rare Disease Research (ORDR) of the National Institutes of Health that provides hope for thousands of our own patients suffering from rare movement disorders. In collaboration with the NIH Institutes and Centers, the Rare Disease Clinical Research Network was initiated in 2003. Seven years later, 4 of the 19 research consortia established now focus on movement disorders: spinocerebellar ataxia, dystonia, episodic ataxia, and multiple system atrophy and similar autonomic disorders. A wonderful introduction to this initiative is written by Dr. Wendy Galpern, Program Director of Clinical Trials at the NINDS. This is followed by 4 separate articles on these rare movement disorders written by their respective consortia leaders. Read the articles here:
