Over 70% of rare diseases are genetic in origin, but our understanding of the biological function of the 19,000 genes in the human genome is still often inadequate to reliably predict whether a defect in a particular gene is likely to cause a specific disease. Now that sequencing technologies that look for defects across the…

New clinical care recommendations available for cardiologists treating adults with myotonic dystrophy

(le français suit) Cardiac complications may affect more than 50% of patients with myotonic dystrophy and occur in both myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) and type 2 (DM2). Cardiac conduction system disturbances can have sudden and catastrophic presentations, but are often preventable through proper management. Cardiac surveillance of patients with myotonic dystrophy can therefore be…
