OPENING HEADLINES:
CHINA BROADENS IT'S BORDERS TO AMERICAN PORK PRODUCERS. PLUS, NEW RECORDS IN THE LATEST CATTLE ON FEED REPORT.
IN AGRIBUSINESS...WATCHING BASIS BY REGION.
“ YOU KNOW WE'VE SAID ALL ALONG THROUGH THE GROWING SEASON IT'S KIND OF THE TALE OF TWO CORN BELTS, WELL NOW THAT HARVEST IS GETTING WRAPPED UP, IT'S STILL THE TALE OF TWO CORN BELTS.”
 AND A FAMILY STRUGGLES TO FIND A CURE FOR A CHILD STRUGGLING WITH MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY. YOU HAVE TO HAVE NOT JUST HOPE BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE OPTIMISM. AND THAT OPTIMISM MAY COME FROM MAN'S BEST FRIEND.
AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE DEPENDABLE, LONG LASTING CHEVY SILVERADO. AND BY MYCOGEN SEEDS.

CHINA TO RESUME MEAT IMPORTS FROM THE U.S.:
GOOD MORNING I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS.
THE WORLD'S BIGGEST CONSUMER OF PORK COULD JUMPSTART DEMAND FROM U.S. PRODUCERS..ESPECIALLY ON A HEELS OF AN ANNOUCEMENT TO RESTART SHIPMENTS FROM SOME MAJOR U.S. FACILITIES.
CHINA SAYS IT WILL RESUME IMPORTS OF THE MEAT FROM 14 U.S. PLANTS AND COLD STORAGE HOUSES. THE COUNTRY HALTED PORK EXPORTS FROM THE FACILITIES MORE THAN A YEAR AGO AFTER FIINDING TRACES OF RACTOPAMINE--A GROWTH PROMOTER THAT'S BANNED IN CHINA. USDA SAYS THE IMPACTED BUSINESSES--THAT PARTICIPATE IN ONE OF ITS RACTOPAMINE CONTROL PROGRAMS---WILL SOON BE ABLE TO RESUME EXPORTS. THESE 14 PLANTS MAKE UP ABOUT HALF OF ALL U.S. PORK PROCESSING CAPCITY. RABOBANK AGRIFINANCE ECONOMIST DON CLOSE SAYS DESPITE THE RACTOPOMINE ISSUES THE INDUSTRY HAS DONE A GOOD JOB MANAGING SUPPLIES. THE MOVEMENT OF PORK THE PRICE LEVELS OF PORK GIVEN THE HUGE SWING IN PRODUCTION FOR THE YEAR. I THINK THAT THE PORK INDUSTRY HAS DONE A PHENOMENAL JOB OF MARKETING PRODUCT ALSO WHILE WE ARE IN FACT SEEING GROWTH IN THE BREEDING HERD ITS A VERY METERED GROWTH. A VERY SCHEDULED GROWTH. I REALLY THINK THE PORK COMPLEX HAS MANAGED THAT INVENTORY VERY WELL.
CLOSE SAYS IMPROVEMENT IN THE DOLLAR SITUATION COULD ALSO HELP IMPROVE EXPORTS IN 2016.


NEW REPORT DISCUSSES HEALTH IMPACTS OF PROCESSED MEAT:
THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION IS EXPECTED TO PUBLISH A NEW REPORT ON THE DANGERS OF PROCESSED MEATS.
THE DAILY MAIL REPORTING THE WHO'S INTERNATIONAL AGENCY FOR RESEARCH ON CANCER, WILL LIST PROCESSED MEAT A CANCER-CAUSING SUBSTANCE--ALSO MARKING RED MEAT AS BAD FOR HEALTH.
IT'S THE SAME GROUP THAT RECENTLY PUT "ROUNDUP" ON ITS LIST OF LIKELY CARCINOGENIC COMPOUNDS.
PROCESSED MEAT WILL GET THE HIGHEST OF FIVE POSSIBLE RANKINGS—IN THE SAME CATEGORY AS ALCOHOL, ASBESTOS, ARSENIC AND CIGARETTES.

USDA ENDING THE WEEK RELEASING IT'S MONTHLY CATTLE ON FEED REPORT. CATTLE IN THE NATION'S LARGEST FEEDYARDS TICKING UP 2 PERCENT AS OF OCTOBER FIRST. THE TOTAL INVENTORY NOW STANDS AT 10 POINT 2 MILLION HEAD.
THAT INCLUDES 6 POINT 9 MILLION STEERS--UP 7 PERCENT FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR. HEIFERS STAYING AT HOME...HEIFERS IN THE FEEDLOT DOWN 7 PERCENT (3.3 MILLION)...THE LOWEST SINCE THE NUMBERS STARTED BEING KEPT IN 1996.
SEPTEMBER PLACEMENT DROPPING 4 PERCENT (1.93 MILLION) ALSO THE LOWEST SINCE 96' WHILE MARKETINGS OF FED CATTLE FELL 2 PERCENT (1.64 MILLION) BELOW 2014.
TRAIN CONTROL SAFETY SYSTEMS :
THE DEADLINE FAST APPROACHING FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF POSITIVE  TRAIN CONTROL SAFETY SYSTEMS. THE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN RAILROADS SAYS THAT END OF YEAR DEADLINE WILL NOT BE MET. THAT COULD BE BAD NEWS FOR AGRICULTURE--AS RAIL CARS USED FOR SHIPPING INPUTS LIKE FERTILIZER AND GRAIN COULD BE PULLED OFF THE TRACKS STARTING NEXT MONTH. THE RAILROAD INDUSTRY SAYS INSPITE OF INVESTING 6 BILLION DOLLARS –IT WON'T MAKE THE DEADLINE TO HAVE 40 PERCENT OF THE PLAN IMPLEMENTED BY THE END OF THE YEAR.
POULTRY PRODUCERS ON THE EAST COAST SAY ANY KIND OF SLOW DOWN  WILL IMPACT FEED SUPPLIES. HERE ON THE DELMARVA PENINSULA WE HAVE A VIBRANT POULTRY INDUSTRY. WE ARE RELYING ON PRIMARILY CORN TO BE IMPORTED INTO THE REGION BY RAIL. 34 POSITIVE TRAIN CONTROL, IF THAT SLOWS DOWN THE MOVEMENT OF CORN OF SOYBEANS ON THE RAILLINES. THAT WILL IMPACT OUR POULTRY INDUSTRY HERE. THE HOUSE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE PASSED A BILL TO EXTEND THE DEADLINE TO THE END OF 2018. IT WAS PART OF A BIGGER HIGHWAY BILL.
A HOUSE TRANSPORTATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE BILL IS CALLING FOR THE DEADLINE TO BE EXTENDED THROUGH THE END OF 2018.
CURRENTLY THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT PLANS TO ENFORCE THE CURRENT DEADLINE. AMERICAN SOYBEAN ASSOCIATION'S FIRST VICE PRESIDENT, RICHARD WILKINS, SAYS WHILE THE TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO MAKE RAIL LINES SAFER, HE'S IN SUPPORT OF A DEADLINE EXTENSION.
HURRICANE PATRICIA BRINGS HEAVY RAIN TO NORTH TEXAS:
PARTS OF TEXAS ALREADY DRENCHED FROM RAINS LAST WEEK...NOW LOOKING SOUTH AT HURRICANE PATRICIA. THE STORM CONSIDERED THE MOST POWERFUL TROPICAL EVENTS EVER MEASURED IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN WITH WINDS CLOCKED AT 200 MILES PER HOUR. REMNENTS OF PATRICIA FORECAST TO MOVE NORTHWARD...IT'S EXPECTED TO BRING HEAVY RAINS NORTH OF THE BORDER INTO TEXAS.
DOUBLE WIDE'S FLOATING. THERE GOES THE DOUBLE WIDE, GONE!")
STORMS THAT DUMPED MORE THAN 3 INCHES OF RAIN IN WEST TEXAS LED TO FLOODING THAT FLOATED SEVERAL TRAVEL TRAILERS AND A DOUBLEWIDE MOBILE HOME AWAY FROM AN R-V PARK. THE SCENE WAS CAPTURED ON CELL PHONE VIDEO. AUTHORITIES SAY NOBODY WAS IN THE TRAILERS DURING THURSDAY'S FLOODING ABOUT 60 MILES SOUTH OF ODESSA. FIREFIGHTERS RESCUED 30 PEOPLE FROM FAST-MOVING WATER IN THE ODESSA AREA. A HAILSTORM WITH THE SAME SYSTEM BLANKETED PARTS OF EL PASO ON WEDNESDAY. AND OF COURSE, ALL OF THIS WAS A PRECURSOR TO "PATRICIA'S VISIT".
CROP WATCH:
LET'S TURN TO MIKE HOFFMAN FOR MONDAY'S CROPWATCH. MIKE.
LET'S START OFF CROPWATCH NEAR DECATUR, ILLINOIS. MATT BURGENER SAYS HE'S ON THE HOME-STRETCH OF HARVEST!
IF ALL GOES AS PLANNED, HE WILL FINISH UP TODAY. USDA SAYS 85 PERCENT OF CORN IS HARVESTED IN ILLINOIS. A NEW REPORT COMES OUT THIS AFTERNOON. MOVING OVER TO EASTERN IOWA, JERRY MOHR IS ALSO FINISHING UP IN THE FIELD. BUT THIS FALL IS EXTRA SPECIAL FOR HIM BECAUSE IT MARKS HIS 40TH HARVEST! MOHR SAYS THIS HARVEST WENT WITHOUT MANY INTERRUPTIONS BECAUSE THE AREA EXPERIENCED A STRETCH OF MORE THAN 30 DAYS WITHOUT RAIN. NOW TAKING A LOOK AT THE DROUGHT MONITOR YOU CAN SEE THE VERY DRY CONDITIONS FOR THE SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY INTO MUCH OF TEXAS AND ALSO OUT WEST OBVIOUSLY THOSE SOUTH CENTRAL PLAINS AREAS GOING TO GET A LOT OF RAIN OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS I'LL HAVE MORE IN MY FORECAST COMING UP.
TEASE:
UP NEXT A LOOK AT MARKETS AND THE INFLUENCE OF BASIS AS A NEW MONTH GETS READY TO ROLL IN. AND MACHINERY PETE JOINS US...
STICK AROUND, FOLKS. WE WILL TALK ABOUT SOME RED HOT BIDDING RECENTLY ON GOOD USED SKID STEERS. AND THIS DOG COULD BE LIVING PROOF THAT A BREAKTHROUGH TREATMENT IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER FOR PEOPLE FIGTING MUSCLE-DESTRUCTION IN THEIR BODIES.
CME:
IN AGRIBUSINESS LAST WEEK STACKING UP AS AN INTERESTING WEEK...LETS SEE HOW MARKETS CLOSED THINGS OUT FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME IN CHICAGO. FRIDAY IN THE GRAIN MARKET WE HAVE EVERYTHING OFF IT'S HIGHS. WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT LOWER SOMEWHAT LED BY THE SOYBEANS. THE RAINS HAVE COME INTO BRAZIL AND THAT HAS PUSHED THE MARKET LOWER. WE GOT ALMOST DOWN TO 8.90 AND HERE WERE AT 9.13 JUST 2 DAYS AGO. EVEN THOUGH THEY'RE OFF THEIR HIGHS FROM THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS THE MARKET IS STARTING TO PUSH LOWER. THE HARVEST IS IN AND SOME OF THESE OPTIONS ARE BRINGING THE MARKET RIGHT TO THE STRIKE.
STARTED EARLY IN THE CATTLE REALLY PUSHED THE MARKETS LOWER ALMOST A BUCK AND HALF BUT THE MARKET ACTUALLY BOUNCED OFF ITS LOWS AND CAME BACK PRETTY STRONG. THERE'S STILL SOME HOPE THAT WE'RE GOING TO GET SOME FURTHER DEMAND BUT I THINK SOME OF THE TRADERS AND INVESTORS ARE WATCHING VERY CLOSELY TO SEE IF THAT COMES ACROSS AND WE KEEP THESE MARKETS HIGHER. ON THE LEAN HOG SIDE LEAN HOGS ALSO SOME PROFIT TAKING COMING IN ALTHOUGH WE'RE STILL SEEING PLENTY OF DEMAND AND ESPECIALLY BEFORE THANKSGIVING WE EXPECT THAT TO CONTINUE. AFTER THAT THEN WE'RE GOING TO START TO WORRY THAT PERHAPS THE MARKET MAY START TO CHURN ALTHOUGH THE HOG MARKET IS STILL TRENDING UP SO WE'RE GOING TO WATCH THAT CLOSELY. THAT'S ALL FROM THE FLOOR OF THE CME GROUP, I'M VIRGINIA MCGATHEY.
AGRIBUSINESS:
JOINING US AT THE AGRIBUSINESS DESK TODAY CHIP NELLINGER BLUE REEF AGRIMARKETING. CHIP LET'S TALK ABOUT BASIS RIGHT NOW, IT'S BEEN KINDA AN INTERESTING TWIST TO HARVEST THIS FALL. IT DEFINITELY HAS. WE'VE SAID ALL ALONG, ALL THROUGH THE GROWING SEASON, IT'S BEEN A TALE OF TWO CORN BELTS. AND NOW THAT HARVEST IS WRAPPING UP, IT'S STILL A TALE OF TWO CORN BELTS. ECB IT FEELS A LOT LIKE 2012 WITH BASIS JUST SCREAMING. 30-40 OVER AT THE PROCESSOR MARKET. REALLY THROUGH THE TALE END OF HARVEST WHICH IS ALMOST UNPRECEDENTED. AND YET IN THE SAME BREATH, YOU HAVE PRODUCERS IN THE FAR NORTHWESTERN CORN BELT, THEY'RE LOOKING AT 40-50 UNDER BASIS OR WORSE. WHERE WE GOT THOSE BIG CROPS. PILES ON THE GROUND OUT THERE, SO THAT IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MAIN FUNCTIONS HERE IS TO GET THE SPREAD-THE CASH CORN SPREAD-WIDE ENOUGH BETWEEN ECB AND WESTERN CORN BELT TO MAKE IT PAY TO GET THOSE BUSHELS OFF THE PILES AND RAILED EAST INTO THE PROCESSOR MARKET. I THINK EVENTUALLY YOU'LL SEE THAT.
AND THAT MAY BE THE BIG DIFFERENCE IN WHY THIS BASIS STRENGTH IS NOT QUITE AS BULLISH AS WE SAW IN 2012 BECAUSE THAT WAS A CROP FAILURE AND A CROP SHORTAGE. THIS IS STILL GOING TO THE SECOND OR THIRD BIGGEST CROP WE EVER RAISED, SO THERE'S NO SUPPLY SHORTAGE. IT'S JUST THAT THE SUPPLY IS WHERE THEY DON'T NEED IT NECESSARILY. AND THE LOWEST SUPPLY IN THE ECB IS WHERE THE BEST PROCESSOR DEMAND IS. VERY INTERESTING FALL AND WINTER IS SHAPING UP AHEAD OF US. IS THERE ANYTHING PRODUCERS CAN DO KNOWING THIS INFORMATION.
WELL FORTUNATELY I GUESS ONE OF THE SILVER LININGS IN THE EASTERN CORN BELT, SO YOU KNOW THAT'S THE CASE. YOU CAN BE VERY SELECTIVE AND SHOP YOUR BASIS AROUND. AND I DON'T THINK IT'S TOO SOON TO DO THAT. NORMALLY WE WOULD SEE THAT BASIS START STRENGTHENING POST
THANKSGIVING AND INTO THE FIRST HALF OF DEC. BUT WE ALREADY SEEN THAT EARLIER THIS YEAR. SO I THINK YOU HAVE TO REALLY WATCH THAT, GO AROUND TO DIFFERENT PROCESSORS IN YOUR MKT. IF YOU HAVE VOLUME, THEY LIKE THAT. THEY'D RATHER BUY 100,000 BUSHELS AT A CRACK, RATHER THAN 5,000 BUSHELS. AND YOU CAN USE THAT VOLUME TO PUSH THE BASIS A LITTLE BIT. IT'S A BUYERS MARKET RIGHT NOW IN THE CASE OF BASIS.
UNFORTUNATELY THE WESTERN CORN BELT YOU'RE AT THE MERCY OF BIG SUPPLIES, SO IT'S NOT AS BRIGHT OF A PROSPECT VERY BASIS THERE. IT'S CERTAINLY INTERESTING TO WATCH. THANKS CHIP, APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE AGDAY IN JUST A MINUTE.

NATIONAL WEATHER:
WELCOME BACK TO AGDAY. METEOROLOGIST MIKE HOFFMAN HERE. TAKING A LOOK AT RAINFALL LAST WEEK MIKE. THIS MAP WE HAVEN'T SHOWN BEFORE BUT PRETTY INTERESTING TO SEE WHERE THAT RAIN FELL. THIS IS A NEW GRAPHIC WE'RE GOING TO SHOW EVERY WEEK. THIS TAKES US THROUGH LAST SATURDAY TO THIS PAST FRIDAY. NOT INCLUDING THIS WEEKEND. MOST OF THE HEAVY RAIN FELL IN TEXAS. AND OBVIOUSLY SOME PLACES OF EASTERN NEW MEXICO AND SOUTHERN AND WESTERN OKLAHOMA HAD SOME DECENT AMOUNTS OF MEXICO AND SOUTHERN AND WESTERN OKLAHOMA HAD SOME DECENT AMOUNTS AS WELL. YOU CAN SEE THE YELLOWS AND ORANGES THERE AS WELL. THEY ARE TWO TO THREE INCHES. A FEW RED AREAS SHOWING FIVE INCHES. NEXT WEEK'S MAP WILL SHOW A BUNCH OF RAIN OBVIOUSLY THAT'S FALLEN IN EASTERN TEXAS THIS PAST WEEKEND AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY MOVING INTO THE GREAT LAKES AS WE HEAD THROUGH THIS COMING WEEK. HERE'S THE JET STREAM. YOU CAN SEE THE TROUGH IN THE EAST. THAT BROUGHT A SHOT OF COOLER WEATHER AS WE MOVE INTO THE FIRST PART OF THIS WEEK AND DRY FOR A DAY OR TWO. THE BIG TIME TROUGH MOVES IN. SO BASICALLY WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS WE HAVE ALL THIS ENERGY COMING IN THE WEST AND THE ENERGY FROM THE IMPACTS `OF PATRICIA COMING NORTHWARD. THAT'S GOING TO BRING DOWN A TON OF RAIN IN PLACES THAT HAVEN'T HAD A WHOLE LOT FOR THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN CORN BELT. THEN AS WE HEAD INTO THE FOLLOWING WEEK OF NEXT WEEK AT THIS TIME, ANOTHER TROUGH STARTING TO DIG IN. THAT WILL BRING ANOTHER SHOT OF COLD AIR. IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR. ONE THING WE'RE SEEING IN THIS WEATHER PATTERN IS THINGS MOVING FROM WEST TO EAST. THAT'S GIVING ALL PARTS IN THE COUNTRY A LITTLE BIT OF MOISTURE FROM TIME TO TIME. THAT'S A PATTERN THAT'S A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN WHAT WE'VE SEEN IN THE PAST MONTH IN A HALF. SOME AREAS DRYING OUT AND OTHER AREAS BECOMING VERY WET. THAT'S WHY I'M GOING BELOW NORMAL FOR MUCH OF TEXAS AND PARTS OF THE NORTHEAST. THAT INCLUDES MUCH OF THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AS WELL.
FOR TEMPERATURES THIS WEEK, A LOT OF THAT IS BECAUSE OF THAT COOL SHOT OF AIR COMING IN THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY, BUT ALSO ALL THAT MOISTURE FLOWING UP FROM TEXAS FROM THE IMPACTS OF PATRICIA. THAT WILL KEEP TEMPERATURES BELOW NORMAL. ABOVE NORMAL FOR MUCH OF FLORIDA AND ABOVE NORMAL FOR MUCH OF MONTANA. THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE WESTWARD FOR ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THIS COMING WEEK. AS FAR AS PRECIPITATION IS CONCERNED, OBVIOUSLY IT'S THE IMPACTS OF PATRICIA COMBINED WITH SOME MOISTURE COMING IN OUT OF THE NORTHWEST, I'M GOING NEAR NORMAL FOR A LARGE PART OF WASHINGTON, OREGON AND NORTHERN PLAINS. YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF SYSTEMS COMING EASTWARD. THAT WILL COMBINE WITH PATRICIA IN THE EAST AND THAT'S WHY AN AREA OF ABOVE NORMAL AND BELOW NORMAL COLORADO TO THE SOUTHWEST. ALRIGHT THE 30 DAY OUTLOOK FOR TEMPERATURES, ABOVE NORMAL IN THE SOUTHEAST, THEN IN THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND MUCH OF THE WEST. BELOW NORMAL FOR WESTERN TEXAS, MUCH OF NEW MEXICO AND BELOW NORMAL FOR THE FAR NORTHEASTERN GREAT LAKES AND THE NORTHEAST. 30 DAY OUTLOOK FOR PRECIPITATION, THIS IS AN EL NINO TYPE PATTERN WHEN YOU SEE ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE SOUTHERN STATES. AND BELOW NORMAL ALONG THE CANADIAN BORDER. AND A COUPLE OF AREAS. THAT'S A LOOK ACROSS THE COUNTRY. NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME LOCAL FORECASTS.
REGIONAL WEATHER:
FIRST OF ALL FOR SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, PARTLY SUNNY AND COMFORTABLE TODAY. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE IS 62 DEGREES. BEAUMONT, TEXAS IS CLOUDY, WINDY AND HEAVY RAIN. THE HIGH IS 71. AND FINALLY BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY IS PARTY SUNNY AND COMFORTABLE AS WELL. THE HIGH IS AROUND 67 DEGREES.
TEASE:

NEXT, FIND OUT HOW 'MAN'S BEST FRIEND' IS GIVING HOPE TO FAMILIES STRUGGLING WITH A DISEASE THAT DESTROYS MUSCLES AND CAN CLAIM LIVES.
AGDAY-BROUGHT TO YOU BY YAMAHA, MAKERS OF VIKING SIDE BY SIDES. YAMAHA-REAL WORLD TOUGH)
IN THE COUNTRY BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE ALL NEW KUBOTA SSV SERIES SKID STEERS. YOU ASKED FOR A QUALITY SKID STEER AND WE DELIVERED. VISIT YOUR LOCAL KUBOTA DEALER TO TEST DRIVE ONE TODAY.
IN THE COUNTRY:
IT'S OFTEN BEEN SAID THAT "DOG IS MAN'S BEST FRIEND". BUT NEW RESEARCH SHOWS A DOG IS NOT ONLY A FRIEND, BUT POSSIBLY A LIFESAVER AGAINST A DEBILITATING NEUROLOGICAL DISEASE.
IN THIS REPORT PROVIDED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, KENT FADDIS SHOWS HOW A NEW TYPE OF GENE THERAPY TESTED IN DOGS IS OFFERING HOPE FOR FUTURE TREATMENTS IN MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY.
BOB MCDONALD ENJOYS PLAYING WITH HIS 10-YEAR-OLD SON, MARK. BUT SHORTLY AFTER MARK WAS BORN, HIS PARENTS NOTICED SOMETHING WRONG "HE DIDN'T START TO WALK UNTIL HE WAS 18 MONTHS AND THAT IS ALWAYS A RED FLAG."
DOCTORS DIAGNOSED MARK WITH DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, THE MOST COMMON FORM OF THE DISEASE, WHICH PRIMARILY AFFECTS BOYS. "IT WAS THE DARKEST DAY OF ALL OF OUR LIVES."
OVERTIME IT DESTROYS MUSCLES AND PEOPLE WITH DUCHENE RARELY LIVE PAST AGE 30. THIS DOG COULD BE LIVING PROOF THAT A BREAKTHROUGH TREATMENT IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. LIKE HUMANS, DOGS CAN DEVELOP THE DISEASE. A TEAM OF RESEARCHERS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI HAS SUCCESSFULLY TREATED DOGS WITH DUCHENNE.
THE DISEASE IS A MUSCLE DISEASE YOU HAVE TO DELIVER  THERAPEUTIC  GENE TO EVERY MUSCLE IS A GIGANTIC TASK."  DUCHENE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY OCCURS WHEN A GENE MUTATION DISRUPTS THE PRODUCTION OF A PROTEIN KNOWN AS DYSTROPHIN.
WITHOUT THIS PROTEIN BOYS LIKE MARK LOSE MUSCLE FUNCTION.
THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI SCHOOL OF MEDICINE RESEARCH TEAM CREATED A MICRO VERSION OF THIS GENE AND USE A COMMON VIRUS TO DELIVER THE THERAPY TO EVERY MUSCLE IN THE BODY.
AFTER MORE THAN A DECADE OF RESEARCH…DUAN SAYS CLINICAL TRIALS IN HUMANS ARE THE NEXT STEP.
(SOT)"THE RESULTS ARE EXTREMELY PROMISING, I HAVE DREAMED FOR THIS FOR YEARS AND IT FINALLY COMING TRUE".
WITH GENE THERAPY, CHILDREN WITH DUCHENE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY MAY BE ABLE TO LIVE A HAPPIER AND LONGER LIFE.
"YOU HAVE TO HAVE NOT JUST HOPE BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE OPTIMISM…DR. DUAN GIVES US THAT." FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI, I'M KENT FADDIS REPORTING.
CLOSING LINES:
THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE THIS MORNING. WE'RE GLAD YOU TUNED IN.
FOR MIKE HOFFMAN, AND ALL OF US AT AGDAY  I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HAVE A GREAT DAY.
HIGH STRENGTH STEEL FOR HIGH STRENGTH DEPENDABILITY, THE CHEVY SILVERADO IS THE OFFICIAL NEWS GATHERING VEHICLE OF AGDAY TELEVISION.
PROMO:
I'M CLINTON GRIFFITHS. HARVEST TIME IS HECTIC ENOUGH FOR FARMERS. BUT IMAGINE INVITING HUNTERS TO YOUR LAND. MEET AN ILLINOIS FAMILY WHO MAKES IT WORK QUITE SUCCESSFULLY. AND WE'LL FOCUS ON MAKING A PROFITABLE PLANTING DECISION FOR 2016. JOIN US WEEKDAYS HERE ON AGDAY.
