Research Interests

Clinical Trial of Coenzyme Q10 and Lisinopril in Muscular Dystrophies. This is a multicenter study that enrolls patients with muscular dystrophies early in their disease, before the onset of cardiomyopathy, into a coenzyme Q10/lisinopril arm versus a traditional treatment control. Echocardiographic monitoring is used to determine whether they qualify for enrollment and to track cardiac function.
