A better understanding of hereditary developmental disorders - what can be learned from the natural course of the disease, using the example of BPAN

In order to be able to develop new therapies from the findings of basic research, it is important to understand the natural course of developmental disorders. Only if we know the natural course of the disease can we assess whether interventions are effective.
