Facioscapulohumeral dystrophy

To participate in this study, contact: Alastair Corbett

Research site: Concord Hospital, Sydney

There is no animal or tissue culture model for the disease, there is no obvious candidate treatments for clinical trials and likely specific treatment still well in the future.

There are a number of collaborative opportunities in this area:

  • clinical markers
  • longitudinal studies – registries
  • muscle MRI as a marker of disease activity
  • atypical cases
  • vascular leakage
  • biology of muscle biopsy
