Stichting Ushersyndroom finances CRUSH study The expertise centre for Usher Syndrome in Radboudumc in Nijmegen (the Netherlands) will start a natural development study into Usher Syndrome. This is a very important step in the research into a treatment of Usher Syndrome, because this study may substantially shorten the running time
Stichting Ushersyndroom will finance the start of the CRUSH study, a natural development study into Usher Syndrome. With this the basis can be laid for future trials. Patients can, with their own files at hand, register for the CRUSH database and so bear the responsibility for the solution and the
