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.
