Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy by Alan E. H. Emery,Francesco Muntoni,Rosaline C. M. Quinlivan Book Summary:

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an inherited and progressive muscle wasting disease, is one of the most common single gene disorders found in the developed world. In this fourth edition of the classic monograph on the topic, Alan Emery and Francesco Muntoni are joined by Rosaline Quinlivan, Consultant in Neuromuscular Disorders, to provide a thorough update on all aspects of the disorder. Recent understanding of the nature of the genetic defect responsible for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and isolation of the protein dystrophin has led to the development of new theories for the disease's pathogenesis. This new edition incorporates these advances from the field of molecular biology, and describes the resultant opportunities for screening, prenatal diagnosis, genetic counselling and from recent pioneering work with anti-sense oligonucleotides, the possibility of effective RNA therapy. Although there is still no cure for the disorder, there have been significant developments concerning the gene basis, publication of standards of care guidelines, and improvements in management leading to significantly longer survival, particularly with cardio-pulmonary care. The authors also investigate other forms of pharmacological, cellular and gene therapies. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy will be essential reading not only for scientists and clinicians, but will also appeal to therapists and other professionals involved in the care of patients with muscular dystrophy.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy by Camilla Bernardini Book Summary:

This volume explores experimental approaches used to study Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), an X-linked degenerative skeletal muscle disease caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene. Including the latest progress and scientific achievements, the book covers recent discoveries achieved through in vivo gene editing which have proven to be promising in restoring dystrophin expression, at least in ameliorating skeletal muscle symptoms, and the contents focus on “Omics” techniques in gene expression, protein expression, miRNAs, and long non-coding RNA analysis, as well as experimental studies of the structural/functional changes affecting the skeletal and cardiac muscles and ongoing preclinical studies and clinical trials. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and practical, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy: Methods and Protocols serves as a guide for researchers exploring the complicated nature of dystrophin in the hope of helping the victims of this disorder.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy by Samuel Alexandre Almeida Honorio Book Summary:

A child with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) faces a childhood and adolescence with a disability that develops gradually. This book intends to expose the problems of children with DMD. The authors discuss situations related to the disease in an attempt to provide some quality and improvement of life for those affected since DMD is a degenerative disease which affects muscle. This book offers a historical study of muscular dystrophy. It also shows some profiles of excellent clinicians and scientists that have contributed to this book with a description of muscular dystrophy from the clinical picture, to the latest techniques in genetics. Also included in the chapters are resolutions of several approaches to DMD, like scales, in order to anticipate how to manage the disease. This book relates some techniques of moderate exercise, like Yoga and water exercises, that are compliable with some advantages in mobility. The book concludes with some current trends and what can be done in the future. This book can be a good read to everyone that is interested in DMD, and also for the ones who know or provide care for those with this terrible disease.

Muscular Dystrophy Research

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Muscular Dystrophy Research by Corrado Angelini,Gian Antonio Danieli,Diego Fontanari Book Summary:

In the last decade, if not only in the last five years, an unprecedented advance occured in the understanding of the primary defect involved in Duchenne muscular dystrophy. As a consequence, new promising lines and trends of research emerged: molecular diagnosis by use of anti-dystrophin antibodies or by DNA probes and those more strictly dealing with the perspectives of therapy, including myoblast transfer and gene therapy. The many outstanding papers which appear in this volume document the incredible power of modern tools of medical research in unravelling the complexity of the pathology and in finding new therapeutical strategies.

Genetic Analysis of the X Chromosome

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Genetic Analysis of the X Chromosome by Henry F. Epstein Book Summary:

The present volume contains the edited transcript of a collo quium sponsored by the Muscular Dystrophy Association and held at Mountain Shadows Inn, Scottsdale, Arizona, December 14-16, 1981. The participants, geneticists, molecular biologists, bio chemists and clinicians, explored in open dialogue ways and means of identifying and characterizing the genetic alterations responsible for X-linked muscular dystrophies, especially the Duchenne type. The clinicians, who urged the use of properly diagnosed and documented case material for study, emphasized the troublesome fact that the primary phenotypic expression of the gene (or genes) involved in the muscular dystrophies is yet to be identified. Discussions centered on the applicability of recent methodol ogical advances in DNA chemistry and molecular biology, cytogenetics and cell biology to mapping the X chromosome. Despite ignorance of the basic disorder in the muscular dystrophies, DNA technologies and chromosome mapping strategies for the discovery of genetic defects and phenotypic expressions were proposed. Beyond its stimulating intellectual exchange, the colloquium yielded important benefits. The participants agreed to share needed cell lines and endonuclease restriction enzymes and to organize interlaboratory communication and collaborative efforts to accelerate progress in the quest for the genetic lesion in Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The discussions were recorded, transcribed, edited and to some extent, rearranged to fit into a sequence of chapters. The editors are grateful to Joy Colarusso Lowe whose unusual skill, patience and persistence made it possible to convert a highly specialized technical discussion into a coherent manuscript.

Muscular Dystrophy and Other Neuromuscular Diseases

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Muscular Dystrophy and Other Neuromuscular Diseases by Leon I. Charash,Robert E. Lovelace,Leach F. Claire,Kutscher H. Austin,Goldberg Jacob,Roye, P. David Book Summary:

Here is a thoughtful new book for professionals who assist persons afflicted with neuromuscular disorders to help them and their families adapt to lifestyle changes accompanying the onset of these disorders. Health care professionals provide strategies to maintain the psychosocial well-being of children and adults with neuromuscular disorders which, in addition to physical damage, also assault the sense of self and challenge the individual’s ability to move and communicate. Chapters describe the psychosocial aspects of a variety of neuromuscular diseases such as Duchenne and myotonic muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Friedeich’s ataxia, and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. The distinctive characteristics of each disease are examined with special attention given to the natural history, treatment, management, and psychosocial issues of the specific disorder. Beyond the clinical and research importance of Muscular Dystrophy and Other Neuromuscular Diseases, it also addresses the anxiety, doubts, and questions felt by patients with chronic progressive disabilities and their families. This helpful guide is unique in the way it features the interaction of professionals in the social services, psychology, religion, and various medical specialties in the care and treatment of these patients. Professionals in all of these disciplines, as well as the patients and families afflicted by these disorders, will benefit from this valuable resource.
