Researchers have designed two proteins that are able to stabilize cell scaffolding linking to muscle fibers, restoring muscle structure and function. The two proteins also were able to significantly prolong survival in animal models of muscular dystrophy.
The FDA have approved the first drug designed to treat patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
A new study reports researchers have found evidence as to how muscles may be triggered to regenerate when damaged.
Muscle regeneration in mouse models of Duchenne muscular dystrophy is improved when THI is purified and given in appropriate doses, a new study suggests.
Researchers have identified small molecules which allow for control over a genetic defect responsible for adult onset muscular dystrophy.
A nationwide clinical trial for a new type treatment that could offer help to those suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a devastating neuromuscular disease.
Doctors implant left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to help stop the progression of heart disease and improve the quality of life in brothers with Becker's Muscular Dystrophy.
Scientists identified a sequence in the dystrophin gene that is essential for helping muscle tissues function, a breakthrough discovery that could lead to treatments for the deadly hereditary disease.
Recent findings by an international collaboration including IRCM researchers hold new implications for the pathogenesis of myotonic dystrophy.
RTC 13 effectively counteracts ‘nonsense’ mutation that causes disorder. Scientists at UCLA have identified a new compound that could treat...
