Muscular dystrophy is a group of disorders characterized by a progressive loss of muscle mass and consequent loss of strength may affect up to 1 in 3500 males. The most common form of muscular dystrophy is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)– typically affect young boys, but other variations can strike in adulthood. Other type is Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD) – similar symptoms to Duchenne but with a later onset and slower progression. Patient usually becomes wheelchair bound by the age of 8 to 10 years, and a proportion of patients have mental sub-normality and cardiac abnormalities. Among which some die of cardio-respiratory complications in their late teens to early twenties. Currently there is no cure for muscular dystrophy, but certain physical and medical treatments can improve symptoms and slow the disease progression such as corticosteroids, physical therapy, respiration assistance, gene therapy and heart medication such as beta blocker.
