Description: The purpose of the study is to use a new research imaging technique, a kind of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to measure important metabolic features of muscle, including mitochondrial function, in people with mitochondrial disease and in healthy individuals.
Key Criteria: Ages 18-65 years
Location: University of Pennsylvania
ClinicalTrials.gov - https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02154711
It is hoped that this new strategy will help physicians to understand better the health problems of people with mitochondrial disease. Eventually, this could lead to better diagnostic and treatment approaches.
