Causes of HyperCKemia in Children: A Retrospective Cohort Study.
Journal of Child Neurology; Pasca D, Ginsberg M

Dec 27th, 2022 - Background and Objectives: Creatine kinase (CK) is a commonly used screening test for neuromuscular disorders (NMDs). However, hyperCKemia can result from several pathologic and physiologic causes. We analyzed neuromuscular disorders in noninfant ...

Metabolic Myopathies.
Continuum (Minneapolis, Minn.); Tarnopolsky MA

Dec 21st, 2022 - Metabolic myopathies are disorders that affect skeletal muscle substrate oxidation. Although some drugs and hormones can affect metabolism in skeletal muscle, this review will focus on the genetic metabolic myopathies. Impairments in glycogenolysi...

Safety of COVID-19 vaccines in children with inborn errors of metabolism in terms of de...
Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health; Zubarioglu T, Oral-Cebeci S et. al.

Sep 30th, 2022 - There are no recommended guidelines or clinical studies on safety of COVID-19 vaccines in patients with inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs). Here, we aimed to examine the relationship between COVID-19 vaccination and metabolic outcome in paediatric...

European Neuromuscular Centre consensus statement on anaesthesia in patients with neuro...
European Journal of Neurology; van den Bersselaar LR, Heytens L et. al.

Aug 17th, 2022 - Patients with neuromuscular conditions are at increased risk of suffering perioperative complications related to anaesthesia. There is currently little specific anaesthetic guidance concerning these patients. Here, we present the European Neuromus...

The Effect of Triheptanoin on Fatty Acid Oxidation and Exercise Tolerance in Patients With Glycogenoses

Aug 11th, 2021 - BACKGROUND: Neuromuscular diseases affect more than 5% of the population in Western countries. Some of the more rare neuromuscular disorders are patients with metabolic myopathies, which are hereditary disorders caused by enzymatic defects of inte...

Oral Ketone Body Supplementation in Patients With McArdle Disease

Oct 6th, 2020 - McArdle disease, glycogen storage disease type V, is a rare metabolic disease caused by mutations in the PYGM gene resulting in absence of the enzyme muscle phosphorylase. Affected individuals are unable to utilize sugar stored as glycogen in musc...

Metabolic Exercise Testing

Jan 22nd, 2020 - Exertional symptoms are the hallmarks of metabolic myopathies, supporting the concept of using functional tests when this diagnosis is suspected. Exercise increases the concentration of muscle metabolites in the venous blood supply (e.g. lactate, ...

GDF-15 as a Biomarker for Mitochondrial Disease

Aug 17th, 2017 - BACKGROUND Energy insufficiency: Mitochondrial and metabolic myopathies are inherited diseases compromising cellular energy metabolism, which especially affects skeletal muscle because of its high energy needs. Chemical energy is stored in the bod...

Energy Supplements to Improve Exercise Tolerance in Metabolic Myopathies

Jan 20th, 2017 - It has recently been documented how patients with GSDIIIa have a moderate to severely reduced exercise capacity, and that exercise induces muscle pain and cramps. These symptoms are caused by the inability to mobilize skeletal muscle glycogen and ...
