Diagnosis of NMD

We analyse muscle biopsies in our laboratory, with the precise aim of diagnosing muscle pathologies. Some muscle samples from the laboratory’s collection are re-analysed using new tools resulting from advanced research methods.

Requests come either from the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital Group :  the Neuromuscular Pathology consultation of the Institute of Myology at the Salpêtrière (Prof Bruno Eymard), the Internal Medicine department of Prof Serge Herson and the Cardiology department of Prof Thomas, or from hospitals outside the Pitié-Salpêtrière Group (Necker-Children’s, Robert Debré, Val de Grâce, Institute of Childcare and Rothschild in Paris, Raymond Poincaré in Garches, Central Hospitals of Poissy, Montreuil etc).

This activity is very directly linked with the concrete needs of patients.
