In honor of National Family Caregivers Month, and to celebrate the many critically important caregivers in the MDF community, we’ve taken a look at the status of caregiving today.
Mike Hamlin reflects on launching the MDF Support Group in Washington, DC.
Since the discovery of the mutation causing DM1 was discovered in 1992, researchers have been trying to understand how the DNA mutation causes such a wide variety of symptoms. A new study may have found a genetic link between DM and Duchenne muscular dystrophy, potentially explaining the progressive muscle deterioration that occurs in adults with DM1
Researchers at the University of Virginia recently published a paper describing a biological pathway they believe may be responsible for muscle degeneration in DM1.
MDF has released a Request for Applications for a study to determine how common the DM1 and DM2 mutations are in the general population.
