A longitudinal study of the relationship between impairment, activity limitation, participation and quality of life in persons with confirmed Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Long-term assessment of people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy


Summary

The purpose of this study is to establish the largest long-term assessment of people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) by looking at how long-term steroid therapy affects the lives of children who use the drug. A second purpose of this study is to find out whether small differences in the genetic makeup of people with DMD affect how their disease progresses and how they respond to steroids.
