Gene discovery may
aid in diagnosis for
muscular dystrophy

BOSTON (AP) - Researchers
said yesterday they have pinpointed
the gene that causes the most com-
mon adult form of muscular dystro-
phy, the latest in a series of discov-
eries that should lead to early diag-
nosis and perhaps eventual treat-
ment.
The discovery already provides
more clues about why this inherited
disease gets worse as it is passed
from generation to generation.
The disease, called myotonic
dystrophy, affects about one in every
7,000 to 8,000 people worldwide.
Three research teams with mem-
bers in the United States, Canada
and Europe discovered the gene al-
most simultaneously. One of their
reports will be published in today's
issue of the journal Cell. The other
two will appear March 6 in the jour-

nal Science.
"The new results will permit very , ";
precise methods for diagnosing the
disease prenatally and before symp"
toms appear and identifying carniers" ,
of the gene, said Dr. Henry Epstein
of Baylor College of Medicine in
Houston, a member of one of the re-a
search teams.
Experts caution, however, that
the discovery does not immediately,
suggest any obvious ways of stop-.--
ping or preventing the disease,-
which causes weaknes and wasting, "
of muscles.
"Treatment is not just around tho p
corner," said Dr. David Brook :of
Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, another co-discoverer.
However, the findings at least
help scientists begin a systematic
search for therapies.
