During the evenings of each of the eight days, interviewers from the Penn Condition Survey Research Center called the participants and asked them about the daily stressors that they had encountered in addition to their mood. The team's results suggest that caregivers of family members with dementia who use adult time care services at least two times weekly have increased DHEA-S levels on the day following the adult day service go to. The results appear in the current issue of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.While this is in progress Dr Real wood and Professor Davies will investigate the way the ‘patches’ can be delivered throughout the whole body. One feasible technique would involve attaching peptides to the DNA which could deliver the ‘patch’ preferentially to muscle cells. Announcing the funding, John Reid stated: ‘I want to especially congratulate the Muscular Dystrophy Advertising campaign for bringing together patients, parents, and scientists to handle real needs and create a novel treatment strategy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.6 million pays tribute to this outstanding collaborative effort, and should result in the first ever UK gene therapy trial for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.’ For more information on Duchenne muscular dystrophy go to the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign website.
