Researchers have discovered a new "biomarker" that can diagnose tension-induced muscular dystrophy.
Chilgok, Kiungpook National University Hospital, announced on December 14 that it has discovered a new biomarker for the first time in Korea through MRI magnetic resonance imaging, demonstrating the presence and progression of gentle muscular dystrophy, in collaboration with Professor Song Hee- .
Tension Muscle Dystrophy & # 39; is the most common hereditary muscular disease that occurs in adults.
Impairment of arm and foot strength occurs early, followed by systemic complications such as heart disease, cataracts and diabetes, as well as loss of muscle.
The researchers found that patients with muscular dystrophy of tension show abnormalities in MRI scanning.
Through Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), the corticospastic tract has shown objective data that affect daytime exercise for patients.
The motor cortex, the cortical spinal cord, is damaged by the movement of the nerve fibers from the cortex to the spinal cord, which results in damage to the motor function of the arm, arm and leg.
According to Professor Park Jin-Sung, "To date, there have been many complications related to muscular muscular dystrophy, but research has found that recent cognitive function and brain degeneration have been observed."
The results of the study were published in the current issue of Nature sister Scientific reports.
