Myoblast Transfer Improves Muscle Genetics/Structure/Function and Normalizes the Behavior and Life-Span of Dystrophic Mice
Dystrophic cells degenerate because they lack the normal genome. In our laboratory, transplant techniques have been developed to facilitate cell survival and cell fusion, such that the normal genome can be incorporated back into the dystrophic muscle1–6.
