Background And Objectives: Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a paediatric neuromuscular disorder caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene. Geneotype-phenotype associations have been examined in glucocorticoid treated boys, but there are few data on the young glucocorticoid-naïve DMD population. A sample of young glucocorticoid-naïve DMD boys is described and genotype-phenotype associations are investigated. Read More

Introduction: Recent discoveries have identified shortened telomeres and related mutations in people with pulmonary fibrosis (PF). There is evidence to suggest that androgens, including danazol, may be effective in lengthening telomeres in peripheral blood cells. This study aims to assess the safety and efficacy of danazol in adults and children with PF associated with telomere shortening. Read More

Background: Critically ill patients with COVID-19 are at an increased risk of developing secondary bacterial infections. These are both difficult to diagnose and are associated with an increased mortality. Metabolomics may aid clinicians in diagnosing secondary bacterial infections in COVID-19 through identification and quantification of disease specific biomarkers, with the aim of identifying underlying causative microorganisms and directing antimicrobial therapy.
