Antisense oligonucleotide (AO) manipulation of pre-mRNA splicing of the dystrophin gene is showing promise in overcoming Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD)-causing mutations. To date, this approach has been limited to studies using animal models or cultured human muscle cells, and evidence that AOs can induce exon skipping in human muscle has yet to be(More)
We give a survey of results on global stability for deterministic compartmental epidemiological models. Using Lyapunov techniques we revisit a classical result, and give a simple proof. By the same methods we also give a new result on differential susceptibility and infectivity models with mass action and an arbitrary number of compartments. These models(More)
Within the coccidia, morphological features of the oocyst stage at the light microscope level have been used more than any other single characteristic to designate genus and species. The aim of this study was to conduct morphometric analysis on a range of Cryptosporidium spp. isolates and to compare morphological data between several genotypes of C. parvum(More)
BACKGROUND Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a fatal genetic disorder caused by dystrophin gene mutations that result in premature termination of translation and the absence of functional protein. Despite the primary dystrophin gene lesion, immunostaining studies have shown that at least 50% of DMD patients, mdx mice and a canine model of DMD have rare(More)
