PLN Foundation

Our Foundation has been established to eliminate the life-threatening PLN- heartdisease p.Arg14del. This genetic disorder causes heartdiseases (such as cardiomyopathies, arrhythmias) whereby the pumpfunction of the heartmuscle is significantly defective. PLN-gene carriers are burdened with serious heartfailure problems which may lead to ventricular assist devices, hearttransplants, or even sudden premature death. Read more about our Foundation here.
