New research mouse mimics McArdle disease
Scientists in Spain have developed mice with a disorder that closely resembles the human metabolic muscle disorder known as McArdle disease (also called phosphorylase deficiency, myophosphorylase deficiency and glycogenosis type 5). The mice are expected to speed testing of treatments for this disorder.
