Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 50 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients with McArdle disease and patients with two sub-typesof Limb-girdle and Becker muscular dystrophies will be included as well as healthy controls.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The ability to cycle
  • No concurrent medical condition that could interfere with interpretation of the results
  • Molecular diagnosis of the specific condition in specified patient groups or healthy control
  • No active muscle injury on the test day (caused by recent exercise, seizures, trauma, etc.)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Competing conditions at risk of compromising the results of the study
  • Cardiac or pulmonary disease contraindicating peak exercise testing or strenuous exercise
  • Veins that are too difficult to puncture for blood sampling, evaluated by the investigator
  • Severe muscle weakness, that prevents the subject completing the exercise test, evaluated by the investigator
