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:
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.
