Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) Market Outlook

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive form of muscular dystrophy that occurs primarily in males, though in rare cases may affect females. DMD causes progressive weakness and loss (atrophy) of skeletal and heart muscles according to National Institute of Health, US. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a rare muscle disorder but it is one of the most frequent genetic conditions affecting approximately 1 in 3,500 male births worldwide. It is usually recognized between three and six years of age.

Treatments include the standard care for DMD along with the new upcoming therapeutic strategies including Genetic Therapies, Cell therapy using muscle precursor cells or stem cells, Membrane stabilization and upregulation of cytoskeletal proteins and treatment of secondary cascades. The medical management for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) comprises several aspects such as Cardiac care, Diet, Exercise, Respiratory Care, Braces, Spinal curvatures. The treatment strategy also encompasses supportive treatment and psychosocial management. DMD is a multilevel/multisystem disease. The medical care of a patient who has DMD and his family is not complete without support for their psychosocial wellbeing.

Glucocorticoids, more precisely prednisone and deflazacort, form main drug treatment for DMD. Although Deflazacort is now approved as Emflaza in the United States. Corticosteroids stabilizes muscle strength and function prolonging independent ambulation and delaying the progression of scoliosis and cardiomyopathy. It has been observed that the patients who receive corticosteroids ambulate 2-5 years longer than the ones not receiving the corticosteroids. Deflazacort is an oxazoline derivate of prednisone. Deflazacort shows more bone-sparing and carbohydrate-sparing properties with less weight-gain effects and improves strength and function. Therefore, Deflazacort becomes the preferred choice over prednisone due to limited side effects and the beneficial properties of muscle sparing and delayed scoliosis progression. Corticosteroids not only do the good to the patients but also imparts certain adverse effects.
