  • causes
  • The program includes the following sections: what is muscular dystrophy, what are the signs of DMD, what causes DMD, how is DMD diagnosed, how is DMD treated and how can you or a loved one cope with DMD. (patient-education.com)
  • Causes of pain in NMD are multifactorial, due to muscular overuse, severe contractures, vertebral fractures (caused by osteoporosis) and/or orthopedic procedures 1 , 5 , 6 . (scielo.br)
  • Centers
  • This work was supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a Paul D. Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Centers grant, and a Robert A. Welch Foundation grant. (eurekalert.org)
  • milder
  • Recent research in rodent models and milder forms of muscular dystrophy supports earlier studies that resistance exercise may have beneficial effects for maintenance of muscle mass in dystrophic muscle. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Evidence from milder forms of muscular dystrophy and mouse models of DMD suggests that strengthening exercise may be beneficial for these children, but this area has not been adequately explored using human subjects. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Research
  • The team's success at manipulating P2X7 and their plans for further research have received strong endorsement from a panel of the world's leading experts in muscular dystrophy. (port.ac.uk)
  • This work provides us with a promising new tool in the CRISPR toolbox," said author Dr. Eric Olson , Chairman of Molecular Biology, Co-Director of the UT Southwestern Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Cooperative Research Center , and Director of the Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine.

  • prevalence
  • Rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular, neurovascular, and arthritis, and increasing health care insurance coverage are the other factors likely to accelerate the growth of the global Duchenne muscular dystrophy market. (mynewsdesk.com)
  • membrane
  • Among the numerous pathogenetic concepts the hypothesis of a structural or/and functional defect of the muscular plasma membrane is still the most attractive. (springer.com)
