AbstractHere is a method which is relatively easy to conduct with only a frozen section as a necessary requirement. The muscle activity is useful index. Extremely interesting is the fact that muscle even though clinically unaffected shows change, indicative of a metabolic nature, possibly an enzymatic disturbance. This may help to explain why collagen deposits more easily as these fibres require the least enzyme for their survival. Muscles requiring so much are therefore specially vulnerable.
