Mother/Daughter Team to Present Breaking Research at ANA2019 on Successful Targeted Treatment of Neuropathy in a Large Family

(MOUNT LAUREL, NJ, October 13, 2019)

When Madeleine C. Klein took her place at the 144th Annual Meeting of the American Neurological Association (ANA), she was the third generation of women in her family to do so.

The pre-med student, together with her mother, Anne Louise Oaklander, MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Nerve Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, presented the competitive late-breaking abstract LBA-S313: “Normalizing Sodium-channel Firing in Small-fiber Neuropathy from SCN9A-variant May Improve Axonopathy Along with Symptoms.”

The paper described the progress that Oaklander’s lab has made since 2013 in diagnosing and treating small-fiber polyneuropathy, which runs through the Soares family of Uxbridge, MA.
