Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2A Patient Registry


LGMD2A Global Patient Registry

The LGMD2A Patient Registry is an international registry that collects genetic and clinical data about persons affected by mutations in the CAPN3 (Calpain 3) gene, namely Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy type 2A (LGMD2A) which is also known as Calpainopathy.

Previously, no database existed of individuals affected by calpainopathy. It is very important to assemble a patient registry so that treatments can be developed.

This registry helps to:

  • Facilitate better estimates of the number of people living with LGMD2A, and draw attention to the cause
  • Allow researchers to better understand the progression and manifestations of the disease, and locate subjects for clinical trials
  • Help with fundraising and awareness efforts
