The Asian Oceanic region represents a large portion of the world population and in 2016 the Asian Oceanic Inherited Neuropathy Consortium (AOINC) was established. Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease is the most common form of inherited neuropathies. Our belief is that bringing together a network of clinicians and scientists will enable collaboration to achieve greater insights into the causes and natural history of inherited neuropathies in the region thereby leading to the discovery of effective therapies and improving patient care.
