BACKGROUND Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a degenerative motor neuron disease caused by homozygous mutations of the survival motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene. Effective treatment for SMA is unavailable at present. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of hydroxyurea (HU) in SMA cells and patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen SMA lymphoid and(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the effect of reaching in different directions on postural adjustment in children with diplegic cerebral palsy (CP), and to examine the relationship between hand reach performance and postural adjustment, and between postural control ability and postural adjustment. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING A movement science(More)
The purposes of the study were to examine the effect of task constraint on the reaching performance in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) and to examine the correlations between the reaching performance and postural control. Eight children with CP and 16 typically developing (TD) children participated in the study. They performed a reach-and-return(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of seat surface inclination on postural stability and forward reaching efficiency in 10 children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP) and 16 typically developing (TD) children. The children performed a static sitting and a forward reaching task while sitting on a height- and inclination-adjustable stool at(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in balance and qualitative and quantitative jumping performances by 20 children with Down syndrome (3 to 6 years) on jumping lessons. 30 typical children ages 3 to 6 years were recruited as a comparison group. Before the jumping lesson, a pretest was given subjects for balance and jumping skill(More)
