Abstract

Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD, BMD) have both been clinically recognized for over 100 years, yet throughout much of that time nothing beyond clinical evaluation and supportive care during the disease course was available to patients. The identification of the molecular basis of DMD/BMD in 1986 paved the way for extensive progress toward the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of this disease.
