KlappentextThis book compiles and
explores cutting-edge research in degenerative skeletal disorders, such as
Duchenne muscular dystrophy and congenital myopathy, and new stem-cell based
therapies and gene replacement therapy. Twelve expertly-authored chapters navigate
the nuances of these treatments in an array of contexts and biological systems.
The topics covered include: How are urine cells from a patient with Duchenne
muscular dystrophy transformed into beating heart cells? What can reprogrammed
cells tell us about heart muscle failure? What do gene mutations mean for those
born with a muscle disease? How are manufacturing methods applied to human stem
cells? Does therapeutic exercise benefit those patients who receive engineered
limb muscle? Is there practical advice about nutrition to enhance muscle
function for the Duchenne patient? Can microRNAs be useful to regenerate
diseased muscle?
Regenerative
Medicine for Degenerative Muscle Diseases is ideal for scientists
and clinicians from varying disciplines in genetics, cell biology, virology,
cell-based manufacturing, rehabilitation medicine, nutrition, veterinary
medicine and neurosurgery. The reader will see how transformative changes occur
in medicine that can powerfully impact the future for patients suffering from
inherited disorders affecting muscles of the body, including the heart.

Autor

Martin K. (Casey) Childers, D.O., Ph.D. is a professor in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and Investigator at the Institute for Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine, University of Washington. He is a graduate of Seattle Pacific University (B.A., Music Performance), Western University (D.O., Medicine, Osteopathic) and The University of Missouri (Ph.D., Physiology & Pharmacology; residency, Rehabilitation Medicine). The Childers' laboratory works in two areas of investigation. In a series of preclinical studies, they address the hurdles required for systemic gene replacement delivery for patients with X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy (XLMTM). In other studies, they use a "disease in a dish" approach with induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells to study heart disease in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Dr. Childers clinical medicine practice at the University of Washington Medical Center is dedicated to serve patients with neuromuscular diseases.
