We assessed safety and efficacy of creatine monohydrate (Cr) in myotonic dystrophy (DM1) in a double-blind, cross-over trial. Thirty-four patients with defined DM1 were randomized to receive Cr and placebo for eight weeks (10.6 g day 1-10, 5.3 g day 11-56) in one of 2 treatment sequences. There was no significant improvement using manual and quantitative(More)
Neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) are synapses that transmit impulses from motor neurons to skeletal muscle fibers leading to muscle contraction. Study of hereditary disorders of neuromuscular transmission, termed congenital myasthenic syndromes (CMS), has helped elucidate fundamental processes influencing development and function of the nerve-muscle synapse.(More)
Congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMS) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of inherited disorders of the neuromuscular junction. A difficult to diagnose subgroup of CMS is characterised by proximal muscle weakness and fatigue while ocular and facial involvement is only minimal. DOK7 mutations have been identified as causing the disorder in(More)
