Myotonic MD research makes good progress
The progress in understanding the molecular basis of both kinds of myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD) is traced with the plans finalized for a new clinical trial in the disease. Experiments demonstrated the possible role played by a loss of proteins called 'transcription factors' in causing MMD, and it was found that a loss of proteins known as 'muscleblind' might underlie both types of MMD.
