Medical Science - Genetic Disorders
Muscular dystrophy is an extremely heterogeneous group of inherited neuromuscular disorders with over 30 distinct types as well as subtypes known and several more to be recognized and sorted. The book presents an elaborative analysis of the different types of muscular dystrophies, genes related to each subtype, disease diagnosis, management as well as available treatment options. Although every distinct type and subtype of muscular dystrophy is related to a distinct causative gene, most of them have overlapping clinical presentations, making molecular diagnosis certain for both patient management as well as disease diagnosis. Discussions regarding the presently available diagnostic approaches that have revolutionized clinical research are presented in this profound book along with reports regarding the ongoing analyses that display a promise for future therapeutic techniques.
