Summary
Muscular dystrophy has long been a disease for which no comprehensive treatment has been found out. Also known as duchenne MD, the mutation causes muscle fibers to pull away from each other and progressive use of muscles in these patients leads to severe muscle damage. But researchers at the University of Nevada discovered that a protein Laminine 111, which is something that the body normally produces before birth, keeps muscle fibers from further deterioration. Experiments carried out on mice have met with success but further research needs to be carried out on the protein Laminine 111 and its effects before it can be tried on humans.
