Note: The authors propose a standard classification system for estimating the stages of disuse atrophy of skeletal muscles. From paper: "We propose a method for staging of DAM (disuse atrophy of skeletal muscles) based on the morphological findings discussed in the present study as shown in Table 1. Note that the classes themselves represent points of attention of morphological changes, not time courses of atrophy ... The present staging would provide a platform for standardization when revisiting previous studies on DAM and other muscle pathologies." This paper is featured on the cover of the journal.
