Drug Screening for Dysferlinopathy Using iPSCs

Given the lack of effective pharmaceutical approaches to the treatment of the progressive muscle disorder dysferlinopathy, researchers led by Yuko Kokubu and Hidetoshi Sakurai (Kyoto University, Japan) sought to use screen myocytes from induced pluripotent stem cells derived from a dysferlinopathy patient (Miyoshi myopathy).
