MND mortality rates in New Zealand

While there are a number of potential shortcomings associated with inferring disease incidence from mortality, the findings supported previous studies that suggest a relatively high MND incidence in New Zealand.

This study examined genetic and pathologic features of ALS in New Zealand using banked brain tissue.
