Bone Disorder clinical trials at UC Irvine
1 research study open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The researcher wants to explore the genetic causes of muscle disease. The researcher is particularly interested in muscle disorders that occur in combination with diseases of bone that appear to be passed on from generation to generation. Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy will measure the concentrations of blood, water, and lipids (fats, for example) in your tissues. This device essentially measures the color of tissues in order to determine tissue physiology (its physical and chemical processes).
Our lead scientists for Bone Disorder research studies include Virginia Kimonis, MD.
