  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

It is well-known that the muscle fiber is capable of regeneration after necrosis not only in normal but in dystrophic muscles. Despite the presence of numerous regenerating fibers, the muscle weakness is progressive in progressive muscular dystrophies. It remains a question why the regenerative process cannot compensate for muscle degeneration in muscular dystrophies?

The extent of muscle regeneration in space and time is influence by the type of injury.
