Contraction tension and kinetics of the peroneus longus muscle were studied in dogs with the Duchenne homologue, golden retriever muscular dystrophy (GRMD), in advance of evaluating localized therapies such as myoblast transplantation. Absolute and both muscle- and body-weight-corrected twitch tension in GRMD dogs were low compared to normal litter mates at 3 months of age (p < 0.0005 for all). Tetanic tension was affected similarly. However, whereas absolute values were still reduced at 6… CONTINUE READING
