Promising new therapy spares muscle loss in Duchenne muscular dystrophy


BUFFALO, N.Y. — A promising therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) developed by University at Buffalo researchers is moving closer to use in humans.

Published in July in Neuromuscular Disorders, the new UB research demonstrates that the novel drug significantly reduced loss of muscle mass and susceptibility to muscle damage from repeated stimulation in an advanced animal model of DMD.
