Research Review No. 28 Some new Drugs. - Karl2346 - Stopwasting - Action Duchenne - Fighting for a cure for muscular dystrophy

Research Review No. 28 Some new Drugs. - Karl2346 - Stopwasting - Action Duchenne - Fighting for a cure for muscular dystrophy: "While we are waiting for curative treatments such as Exon-skipping, and other types of gene therapy to become available, it is important to keep the DMD patients as able to maintain as much muscle strength as possible for as long as possible. This is because generally when something in the body is lost it is usually lost for good. Currently only steroids are in use to maintain muscle strength longer, but generally they only delay it for about two years."
