Recent Human Glossary Link Mutation Publication using Registry Data

Richard Wang, PhD, Stan Nelson, MD and their team of researchers at UCLA published an article in June in the journal Human Mutation that uses data entirely from The Duchenne Registry. They found a correlation between certain deletions and the age at loss of ambulation. In particular, they found that boys with exon 45 deletions and boys with exon 3-7 deletions had a later age at loss of ambulation (they walked longer) than other boys in the Registry.
