Clinicians and researchers

For health professionals dealing with a case of Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD) we can offer information on the disease, information on the trial of Gene Therapy in Milan, details of palliative and therapeutic care and contact with specialists in the field.  You can contact us on

We are currently working on a Registry of all known cases of MLD in the UK. Patient information in this registry will be used to create a natural history of MLD types for research and experimental clinical trials to better understand and develop new treatments.  Researchers will be able to access the MLD Registry to locate people who may be eligible to participate in particular studies, such as studies to test new treatments.

MLD Support Association also organises a bi-annual Scientific Conference where scientists and clinicians who specialise in Leukodystrophies, both from the UK and overseas, can meet up to learn about current treatment and research.  If you are interested in attending our next Scientific Conference in 2020, please contact us on

We have also produced a leaflet Understanding MLD to provide information on MLD (Metachromatic Leukodystrophy) for Hospitals, GP Surgeries, Paediatric Clinics, Schools and Nurseries.
