In an additional study in the murine model, muscle strength was evaluated. MTM1 KO mice were treated by intramuscular injection of an AT132 prototype. As a control, normal mice were treated with a placebo. Contractile strength of the muscles in the extensor digitorum longus, or EDL, and tibialis anterior, or TA, muscles were measured four weeks post dose. The effects of the AT132 prototype on muscle contractility are shown in the figure below.

Statistical significance is important and when used herein is denoted by p-values. The p-value is the probability that the reported result was achieved purely by chance (for example, a p-value < 0.001 means that there is a less than 0.1% chance that the observed change was purely due to chance). Generally, a p-value less than 0.05 is considered to be statistically significant.
