Discovery of Naturally Occurring Protein that could Reverse Severe Muscle Wasting in Disease, Aging and Trauma

An exciting discovery by Monash University scientists may lead to faster recovery from muscle injury and wasting diseases. When we tear a muscle – stem cells within it repair the problem. We can see this occurring not only in severe muscle wasting diseases such as muscular dystrophy and in war veterans who survive catastrophic limb […]
