The muscular dystrophies are a group of genetic diseases that affect skeletal muscles and often also heart muscle. The symptoms include muscle weakness and progressive muscle wasting.

The major forms of muscular dystrophy are:

  • Myotonic
  • Duchenne
  • Becker
  • Limb-girdle
  • Facioscapulo-humeral
  • Congenital
  • Oculo-pharangeal
  • Distal
  • Emery-Dreifuss

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is the most common and a very severe form of the disease. It is caused by a genetic fault which prevents the production of a protein called dystrophin. Without dystrophin, muscles are fragile and are easily damaged. Over time so much damage builds up that the body can’t repair it and muscles waste away, causing progressive disability in patients.

In patients with a genetic disease like muscular dystrophy, stem cell therapy is a very attractive option because injection with a specific type of “stem cell” that can make muscle and express the missing protein has the potential to repair abnormal muscle function.

How could stem cells help?

Producing healthy muscle fibres with the help of:

  • Myoblasts - a type of cell formed from satellite cells
  • Mesoangioblasts (MABs) - a type of stem cell or 'progenitor' cell.
  • Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) - made from skin cells in the lab and are pluripotent

Reducing inflammation with the help of:

  • Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) - found in the bone marrow

Steps in the Stem Cell Treatment for Muscular Dystrophy

  • Admission
  • Pre-operative tests
  • Pre-operative evaluation
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Rehab
  • Discharge

Why is there such an interest in stem cells?

  • Increase understanding of how diseases occur.
  • Generate healthy cells to replace diseased cells (regenerative medicine).
  • Test new drugs for safety and effectiveness.
