Third-party-funded project

Analysis of neuromuscular insufficiency in rotator cuff disease.

Project management at the University of Würzburg:

Participating scientists:

Molecular genetic markers of denervation (expression of fetal AchR) and immunhistochemical findings are evaluated in biopsies of human rotator cuff and deltoid muscles of patients suffering from subacromial pain. These parameters are correlated to clinical and neurophysiological findings.

Key words:
    Neuromuscular insufficiency
    muscle atrophy
    rotator cuff
    subacromial pain
    fetal acetylcholine receptor

Projekt period: from 05.2001 to 05.2004

Funding institution:
Landeshaushalt Wissenschaftsministerium ( IZKF )
