Does ascorbic acid benefit charcot-marie-tooth?

Not promising...: Ascorbic acid supplementation had no significant effect on neuropathy compared with placebo, suggesting that no evidence is available to support treatment with Ascorbic Acid in adults with charcot-marie-tooth 1a. Cmt1a is the most common inherited nerve disorder.High-dose Ascorbic Acid has been shown to have remyelinating potential and to correct the phenotype in mice.
