Date: Sunday, 4 JuneTime: 16:30 – 18:00Room: Barahona 4 (second floor)Speakers: Antonio Stecco (USA), Preeti Raghavan (USA)Spasticity, muscle stiffness and contracture cause severe disability after central nervous system injury. However, current treatment options for spasticity produce muscle weakness which can impede movement and do not directly address muscle stiffness. Here we propose that the accumulation of hyaluronan within muscles promotes the development of muscle stiffness, and report that treatment with the enzyme hyaluronidase increases upper limb movement and reduces muscle stiffness without producing weakness.
