It seems that a recent clinical trial has gone well for a gene therapy treatment for LGMD, in which the treatment appears not only safe, without side affects, but also effective in producing the missing proteins for that particular type of MD.
I realize it's just a baby step towards a cure but it's always uplifting to hear a bit of promising research news.

Yeah! Where do I sign up? Years ago I read something about gene transfer in golden retrevers and offered to receive dog dna or genes or whatever. My doctor said no. maybe he'll let me get in line for this. I am so encouraged when I hear about these break throughs. Any thing to help our future generations!!
