Serum osteopontin as a novel biomarker for muscle regeneration in Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked muscular disease, affecting boys in principle. It is caused by mutations in the gene coding for dystrophin, a membrane-related structural protein in skeletal and cardiac muscles. The lack of dystrophin

Understanding the dog model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Animal models are indispensible in the development of novel therapies.  A clear understanding of the model itself is essential before the model is used in research.  This means we need to know every aspect of the model
