Impaired neuromuscular transmission and motor difficulties in children with Prader-Willis syndrome
Ehrstedt, Nergårdh, Rostedt-Punga, et al.
The mechanisms behind muscle weakness and motor difficulties in children with Prader-Willis syndrome (PWS) are unclear and believed to be multifactorial. Here, we will perform two pilot studies with children to investigate whether an impaired neuromuscular transmission may be a contributing factor to PWS, and whether it is affected by treatment with growth hormone.
