Stimulate the generation of myelin, a therapy for the CHARGE Syndrome?

CHARGE syndrome is a rare genetic disease (1/10 000 births) caused by mutation of a copy of CHD7 gene resulting in many defects. This syndrome is particularly recognized as the major cause of deafness and congenital blindness. In affected children, neurological disorders increase with age. The team of Dr. Parras to the ICM has shown that this anomaly would be linked to a deficient myelination. Their findings indicate that CHD7 gene is essential for the maturation of oligodendrocytes and myelin formation. This new potential therapeutic target could help develop new treatments for people suffering from diseases due to defects in myelination.
