NCG / MIU Team Newcastle Muscle Centre

Newcastle leads the National Commissioning Group (NCG) for rare neuromuscular disorders, and is specifically responsible for the LGMD diagnostic and advisory service for the whole of the country.

The Muscle Immunoanalysis Unit is the national referral centre for the diagnosis of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMDs) and works closely with the diagnostic molecular genetics unit and specialist clinicians at the Institute of Genetic Medicine. Also crucial is the ongoing involvement with research, since relevant disease-causing genes are still being discovered.
