What is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)?

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a severe and fatal form of muscular Dystrophy.

About 1 in 5,000 boys are thought to suffer from this disease, whose symptoms include muscle weakness, scoliosis, intellectual disability and extreme fatigue.

Currently there is no known cure, and most patients die from disease-related symptons by the age of 25.
