Finding the culprit behind lactic acidosis

In 1999, Pierre Lavoie undertook a worthy challenge: to pedal 600 km, day and night, in order to raise awareness and research funds for lactic acidosis, a disease that had taken two of his four children. For Pierre, it was time to act. A research team headed by Dr. John D. Rioux shared his enthusiasm. Their goal was to find the gene responsible for lactic acidosis (in French)
