Welcome to COL6.it! We are a group of patients and parents of children affected by type VI collagen-linked muscular disorders: Bethlem myopathy, Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy, myosclerosis myopathy. The main objective of COL6.it is to constitute a reference point for these disorders, where the patients themselves and their families may have the opportunity to meet, with a view to sharing the problems and difficulties these disorders entail. The COL6.it group is actively engaged in supporting medical and scientific research, in particular with testimonies and initiatives targeted towards raising awareness in the institutions and pharmaceutical industries of the necessity to finance projects for the discovery of possible therapies to cure type VI collagen-linked myopathies.
