Familial Amyloid Neuropathies

Familial Amyloid Neuropathies (FAP) are a rare group of autosomal dominant diseases in which nerves are compromised due to protein aggregation or fibril formation of transthyretin, apolipoprotein A1, or gelsolin proteins, resulting in nervous system dysfunction. Here is the latest research.
