The Research and Development division of the company Diatheva Ltd. Fano and IGM - CNR, Unit of Bologna have established a collaboration for the development of polyclonal antibodies specific for the human prelamin A. The prelamin A is the precursor protein of lamin A and is accumulated in serious hereditary and acquired diseases creating cellular toxicity  and causing lipodystrophy and premature aging. 

The IGM-CNR has launched the activities of the Italian Network Laminopathies which meets regularly at the Institute of Bologna. The Network aims to bring together and coordinate all the Italian centers involved in clinical practice and research in the field of diseases caused by mutations in the lamin A / C and other proteins of the nuclear envelope. The Italian Laminopathies Network has a website that provides current information on diseases, the centers involved and the progress of scientific research.
