Clinical Centres and Clinical Networks
De-identified patient data shared with cTAP has been collected by major neuromuscular paediatric care centres, as well as by networks of clinical centres, primarily from Europe and North America; it includes natural history, real world and clinical trial data.
We are grateful to these clinical centres, clinical networks and their staff for curating patient data; to patient organizations for their financial support, and to drug companies for the clinical trial data they shared with cTAP.
Finally, we thank all patients and their families for consenting their data for research.
