I understand that fibrosis has a fair amount to do with this disease because it creates a barrier to the regeneration of muscle. I know there are some drugs being researched that are supposed to slow or stop it, but can it be reversed once it has already happened? I'm just curious.

Hi Maggie,

I came across this item on myostatin and thought,well, most of us have heard or read something on mysostatin at one time or the other.Still i think i good i share. Am i reading it wrong or would it mean that muscle lost to fibrosis and may be turned to connective tissue could be salvaged thro myostatin inhibition?Check out link below.Thanks.


Sounds like it to me...thanks.

Hi Maggie,pls have a look at this item i picked from the net on fibrosis and decorin ( a compound that was under study a few years ago for suppression of fibrosis)  http://www.distrofiamuscular.net/fibrosis_dmd.PDF?origin=publicatio...
