It will recruited nine young men aged 12-17 with DMD who will have the molecular patch administered by injection into a small muscle in the foot. Subject to the success of the study are already a plan to go to deliver with another study examining the molecular patch under the skin so that all muscles in the body can be treated diprolene ointment .) consortium has attracted a large grant from the Department of Health, which is funding the study. Recent additional funding from the Medical Research Council , Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, Big Lottery Fund , Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy and Muscular Dystrophy Ireland allows the consortium to promote the current studies.

In a world-first, the antisense oligonucleotide patches work by masking the defective portion of the gene and allowing shortened but functional proteins are formed.DMD affects one in 3,500 boys and caused by reduced production of dystrophin – important for muscle function. The course of the disease is so strong that untreated boys lost the ability, through their early teens and are expected to live only in his twenties. – Director of Research at the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, Marita Pohlschmidt, said: ‘The start of the study is good news because it gives us, with proof into treatment.promising technology will prevent the wasting of muscles in boys with Duchenne offer, is muscular. In the last 47 years is the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign role in supporting role in supporting the research in Duchenne by investing about? This is the first time that the results from this kind of research are connected in such translated into treatment. We are proud that we are an important an important role in the formation of the scientific consortium and the preclinical work with more than half a million pounds were supported. Our hopes are high that the results of this clinical trial will be positive. ‘.

The cap on full fee paying places to remove.

AMA president Dr Rosanna Capo Lingua that the extraordinary costs for full fee medical degree to which the increase in the number of full fee paying medical student places is good good Australia – With the government’s decision earlier this year, the cap on full fee paying places to remove, the number of full fee paying for the first year medical students will continue to increase because university sees a lucrative source of income, Capo Lingua said. While it is a privilege to medicine is to study, we arrive at a situation where be be two levels of medical students – those who enter by the HEC places, and those who are privileged enough to be able afford full fee places can.

The 2008 Good Universities Guide has revealed that full fee paying students to NSW was $ 242,000 for a medical degree at Bond University or $ 237,000 for a combined arts / medical school at the University of be recharged.
