Changing mortality patterns of motor neuron disease in Japan
TLDR
A rising trend of deaths from motor neuron disease was identified in European countries, but the rate has been stationary in the United States, and the need for extensive epidemiological studies to identify the extrinsic factors which induced such a trend. Expand
Life spans of Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients in the hospital care program in Japan
TLDR
Analysis of 176 autopsy cases of Duchenne muscular dystrophy demonstrated that hospitalized patients showed longer life spans than their non-hospitalized affected maternal uncles, and pulmonary infection has become a less frequent cause of death in recent years. Expand
