Target Research 2014 (3 of 4)

Diagnosis and genetic testing

In this edition of Target Research we look into the techniques and tools used by clinicians to make a diagnosis – from muscle biopsies to genetic sequencing.  We also have an article on ataluren (or Translarna as it is now known), looking at the European Medicines Agency’s recommendation that the drug should be given conditional approval for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Finally, we feature the work we are doing in partnership with other organisations and charities and some of the exciting results of this work.
