Medical Center Researchers Make Muscular Dystrophy Breakthrough
Researchers at the Medical Center have found a way to block the genetic flaw at the heart of a common form of muscular dystrophy. The study "demonstrates the potential to reverse established symptoms of the disease after they have developed, as opposed to simply preventing them from getting worse,” says Charles Thornton, professor of neurology.
