Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Inclusion body myositis is a rare sporadic inflammatory-degenerative myopathy of the elderly. Despite being the commonest type of acquired myopathy after the age of 50, misdiagnosis is extremely common. The most frequent hurdle in identifying new cases is the wrong diagnosis of polymyositis or motor neuron disease. Novel insights into pathogenic mechanisms have heralded the quest for newer therapeutics as well as drug repurposing in this otherwise progressive disorder.
