Overview

This collection of modern methods for studying the molecular basis of muscular dystrophy and the potential for designer drug and gene-based therapies covers a broad spectrum of the clinical research protocols u tilized by those working on the cure of this debilitating disease. Its step-by-step, easy-to-follow protocols will enable researchers to lea rn what techniques the expert contributors are utilizing in their ques t to conquer this disease and permits them to apply them in their own research, thus leading to potentially new therapeutic regimens to trea t those afflicted with muscular dystrophy.
