EFS function helps to gain insights into DMD research

EFS function helps to gain insights into DMD research
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive and fatal muscle degenerating disease caused by a dystrophin deficiency. Effective suppression of the primary pathology observed in DMD is critical for treatment. Patient-derived human induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (hiPSCs) are a promising tool for drug discovery.
