With the support of Myotubular Trust funding, researchers from the Comparative Neuromuscular Diseases Laboratory at the Royal Veterinary College in collaboration with groups in France and elsewhere have provided new insight into a form of centronuclear myopathy that is common in Labrador retriever dogs and has been reported in humans.
