Advances in inflammatory myopathies

Inflammatory myopathies (or myositis) are diseases that involve muscle inflammation. These so-called “autoimmune” diseases are not hereditary.
They are characterised by muscle weakness (ranging from simple discomfort to complete paralysis), and often by muscle pain. Certain forms of myositis are accompanied by joint pain or skin manifestations, or even cardiac and/or pulmonary involvement, making these conditions very serious.

This document presents research news from the past year regarding inflammatory myopathies, such as ongoing studies or clinical trials, scientific and medical publications, etc.
