Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Duchenne is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed during early childhood, affecting approximately 1 out of every 3,500 boys and 20,000 babies born each year. Duchenne causes loss of muscle function and independence. There is currently no cure for Duchenne, but much research is currently underway to find an interim therapy that will help delay the progression of the disease until a cure is found.
