New research from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has identified a signaling pathway responsible for muscle weakness in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). By targeting this pathway and regulating a specific signaling molecule, researchers have discovered a potential avenue for therapies to alleviate muscle weakness in DMD patients, offering hope for improved health and increased life expectancy for those affected by this debilitating condition.
