Leukodystrophy Center

Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD)


The University of Minnesota is the world’s most experienced center in the treatment of patients with cerebral ALD.

We have several clinical trials for ALD patients, and we transplant more cerebral ALD patients than any other center in the United States. We have published extensively on the clinical aspects of ALD, including biomarkers, oxidative stress, neuropsychology, and imaging.

We understand the difficult choices that parents and guardians have to make when considering a blood and marrow transplant. Our specialists have had the opportunity to care for and follow many patients with ALD, and they are prepared to address your child’s complex medical needs. This chart shows how our experience compares to other transplant centers.
