New Hope for Rare ‘Stone Guy’ Disease, Where Flesh Turns to Bone: – WEDNESDAY, Sept køb cialis . 2, 2015 – – Researchers working with mice believe there’s expect patients with a uncommon genetic disorder that turns their muscle into bone, essentially immobilizing them in an extra skeleton. The condition, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva , gradually replaces muscle, tendons, ligaments and additional soft tissue with bone. Called stone man syndrome, this lethal disorder is apparently caused by mutations in a gene known as ACVR1 that regulates bone and muscle development, researchers report Sept. 2 in the journal Research Translational Medicine.
