For a future without childhood dementia


Childhood Dementia (Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuszinosis, short NCL) is a deadly and until today barely investigated metabolic disease. Affected children lose their eyesight, suffer from epileptic seizures and steadily lose all mental and physical abilities. Usually they die before the age of 30. We, the NCL Foundation, commit ourselves to promote national and international research in order to give affected children a prospect of missing treatment and healing approaches.
