Aerobic Exercise in Boys With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

key information

study id #: NCT03319030

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

status: completed

purpose:

This research study wants to learn more about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and exercise. Today it is unknown how exercising impacts boys with DMD. The investigators believe that increasing activity and aerobic exercise may help with heart, lung, and muscle function. The investigators are hoping to compare physical strength and blood samples of boys with DMD to see if there are any differences between kids who exercised more as a child versus those who didn’t.
