Abstract

Muscle metabolites were obtained by in vivo proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy of 3 patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), 6 patients with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), and 10 normal volunteers. Patients with DMD and SMA had lower trimethyl amide (TMA)/water and TMA/total creatine (tCr) ratios but normal tCr/water ratios.
