New research increases understanding of Duchenne muscular dystrophy

(Binghamton University) A new paper, co-written by faculty at Binghamton University, State University of New York, increases the understanding of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) -- one of the most common lethal genetic disorders -- and points to potential therapeutic approaches.
