    "We don't get a lot of things to really care about." So, you think you are interested in science, eh? Well, let's see how the sausage is made. Today we share our experience generating the FSHD-like minipig models, which will be key tools for testing and advancing better FSHD therapeutics and developing methods for building back your muscles.

    Assessing the case, so far, for apabetalone as a new drug candidate being investigated for FSHD.

    Assessing the case, so far, for apabetalone as a new drug candidate being investigated for FSHD.

    "I don't know how I'm going to live with myself if I don't stay true to what I believe." We evaluate the recent published work describing apabetalone, a small molecule drug from Resverlogix Corp that has been around for awhile and in clinic for other indications and is now being assessed more seriously as a potential therapeutic for FSHD. Overall, while lacking in some areas, this initial study is generally positive and supports that it is a new candidate worthy of further evaluation.

    "Farmer Hoggett knew that little ideas that tickled, and nagged, and refused to go away should never be ignored, for in them lie the seeds of destiny." We are in Australia promoting FSHD awareness with Parliament and to gather government support for FSHD diagnostics and clinical trial infrastructure, as well as catching up with many of our Australian friends.
