This conference is in honor of Dr. David MacLennan for his contributions to our understanding of the genetics, pathogenesis and treatment of MH.
Summary/Abstract: Through lectures and interactive discussions with subject matter experts in molecular genetic diagnosis, and muscle function in health and disease, this project will inform physicians and scientists who are researching malignant hyperthermia (MH) and its variants and those who care for patients with MH, heat stroke and muscle breakdown of the latest advances in the field. Sharing this information will advance genetic diagnosis of patients suspected of being at risk for MH, congenital muscle disorders, heat stroke and muscle breakdown with exercise.
