In our capacity as a Centre of Expertise of Neuromuscular Pathology, we are asked to respond to requests from other centres in France and abroad.
We are frequently approached to:
- give a second opinion about examinations already carried out elsewhere ; we regularly receive biopsy sections in cases of diagnosis difficulties (about sixty cases a year).
- complete the analyses of muscle samples taken by other laboratories in Paris or the provinces. These samples are analysed using specialist techniques, not available in all laboratories.
- help different French and foreign laboratories (by taking samples for research).
