Podcasts Dedicated to the Latest Neuromuscular Research
Hosted by Kevin Flanigan, MD, "This Month in Muscular Dystrophy" podcasts highlight the latest in muscular dystrophy and other inherited neuromuscular disease research. During each podcast, authors of recent publications discuss how their work improves our understanding of inherited neuromuscular diseases, and what their work might mean for treatment of these diseases.
Dr. Louis Chicoine discusses the effect of plasmapheresis in removal of AAV antibodies for gene therapy.
Dr. Louise Rodino-Klapac discusses alpha 7 integrin as A therapeutic approach to muscular dystrophy.
Dr. Jill Rafael-Fortney discusses the effects of Lisinopril and Spironolactone on DMD mice.
Dr. Valérie Allamand discusses the function of Selenoprotein N in muscle and its link to neuromuscular disorders.
Dr. Carsten Bonnemann discusses collagen VI myopathies and a novel cause of ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy.
Dr. Paul Martin discusses how the CMAH gene deletion in the mdx mouse model of duchenne muscular dystrophy helps better mimic the more severe aspects of DMD.
Dr. Scott Harper discusses DUX4 as a potential candidate gene for facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy.
