MDA Launches Clinical Network to Speed Myotonic Dystrophy Research
Date:1/23/2013

dystrophy," said Jane Larkindale, MDA's director of translational research. "Basic research has shown that this disorder involves a disease mechanism known as 'RNA toxicity,' and translational research has shown that this mechanism is unusually responsive to therapeutic intervention. Based on the current pace of therapeutic development, it is reasonable to expect that new therapies will be advanced into clinical trials in the near future, and the new network will ensure that we're prepared for that."

About myotonic muscular dystrophy

Myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD) is a common form of muscular dystrophy that weakens skeletal muscles and also can affect many other organs in the body, including the heart, eyes, brain and gastrointestinal tract. Caused by an abnormal expansion of DNA on either chromosome 19 or chromosome 3, the disease also is known as "dystrophia myotonica," or "DM."
