MLD Initiative

The MLD initiative (MLDi) is a European disease registry for metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) and a multi-stakeholder collaboration. Their aim is to improve disease management of metachromatic leukodystrophy through an international disease registry and multistakeholder collaboration. The MLD initiative collects patient data for research and healthcare purposes. Researching rare diseases is difficult because of small patient numbers. Therefore, clustering data in a European database is needed. The MLDi initiates, coordinates, and manages various projects focused on improving the care for MLD.
