Our study included 10 DM2 and 10 control (CTR) muscle biopsies from biceps brachii. DM2 and CTR were age- and sex- matched. Most DM2 patients had myotonia and cataract, two disease hallmarks, while differences in other clinical parameters (muscle strenght, diabetes, CPK, FT3, FT4, TSH, ejection fraction) were not significant. Genes expression was assessed by Affymetrix Gene Chip Human Exon 1.0 ST Array.
