The FSH Society Issues Research Grant for Developing New Facioscapulohumeral Dystrophy Muscular Measurement Tool
Date:8/6/2013

Lexington, Massachusetts (PRWEB) August 06, 2013

Today, the FSH Society, a Massachusetts based non-profit that is a world leader in combating facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD), announced that it has awarded a $48,909 research grant to Dr. Jeffrey Statland, University of Rochester Fellow and Senior Instructor in the Department of Neurology. The grant will fund Dr. Statland’s evaluation of electrical impedance myography (EIM) as a tool for quantifying the muscle structure of FSHD patients. EIM offers a portable, quick and easy way to measure muscle changes in FSHD patients. The EIM tool was developed by Seward Rutkove, MD, and is manufactured by Convergence Medical Devices which is based in Boston, Massachusetts.

FSHD, one of the most prevalent types of muscular dystrophy, is a degenerative muscle disease that causes progressive weakness, usually starting with the face, shoulder and arms, but which can affect almost any skeletal muscle. FSHD affects approximately 500,000 people worldwide and between one and two percent of the population carries a genetic trait that places future generations at risk of the disease. Currently, there is no treatment.

“We are thrilled that the FSH Society continues supporting the development of new clinical outcomes for future FSHD clinical trials,” said Dr. Statland. “This is an exciting time for FSHD research. Recent breakthroughs in our understanding of the molecular pathology of FSHD identified future therapeutic targets – so developing efficient, high quality outcomes is a priority for the FSHD research community.”

While EIM technology is already commonly used in body composition measurement devices, it is considered a new tool for neuromuscular diso
