» Cardiac drugs show cardioprotective benefit in boys with Duchenne Action Duchenne

» Cardiac drugs show cardioprotective benefit in boys with Duchenne Action Duchenne: "“Our findings suggest that early treatment with eplerenone attenuates decline in cardiac function, which is a leading cause of death in Duchenne muscular dystrophy,” the researchers wrote. “Although the fundamental goal of this study was to test the use of early intervention with available drugs in a disorder in which patients are likely to have progressive cardiomyopathy, the need for long-term clinical follow-up is apparent when recognizing that hard events, such as cardiac failure and death, are unlikely to occur for many more years.”"
