The results of an electrophysiological study in a patient with central areolar choroidal dystrophy
have been reported in the literature.
This phase 2 exploratory study includes patients with congenital onset myotonic dystrophy
Muscular dystrophies are clinically divided into six types as Duchenne (DMD), Becker (BMD), Limb-girdle (LGMD), Congenital (CMD), Facio-Scapulo-Humeral Muscular dystrophy
(FSHMD), distal myopathies and myotonic dystrophy
Most people have very little understanding of Becker muscular dystrophy
, and the challenges that boys and men affected by it face every day," said Kate, "I wanted to raise awareness as well as money that will fund research into treating the condition".
Jack was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy
in October 2013.
These include Messmann dystrophy
and gelatinous drop-like dystrophy
2010); consequently, individuals with myotonic dystrophy
may be apathetic and disinterested in their health (Meola & Sansone, 2007).
The report provides a snapshot of the global therapeutic landscape of Muscular Dystrophy
2,3] In MDs, Duchenne muscular dystrophy
(DMD; OMIM #310200) and milder allelic Becker muscular dystrophy
(BMD; OMIM #300376) are most commonly observed forms in humans.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy
is caused by the lack of a vital muscle protein called dystrophin, leading to muscles weakening and wasting over time and increasingly severe disability.
The 11-year-old of Blyth, Northumberland, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy
when he was just three-and-ahalf-years-old and is still able to walk unaided.
When we started fundraising three years ago, the chances of a study like this for Ullrich muscular dystrophy
seemed slim, because of the rarity of the condition.
