Lactate production upon short-term non–ischemic forearm exercise in mitochondrial disorders and other myopathies

Abstract

The nonischemic forearm exercise test (NIFET) has been shown to be as effective as the classic ischemic forearm exercise test (IFET) in the diagnosis of patients with Mc Ardle disease. Recently, the lactate increase normalized to the mechanical energy production in NIFET was suggested to have a intermediate sensitivity and satisfactory specifity for the… (More)
