Treatment Options for Muscular Dystrophy

Posted: September 21, 2018 at 7:44 am

Muscular dystrophy is a term that covers a wide range of muscle-wasting conditions, many of which are progressive and carry a variety of symptoms of differing severity. There is no cure for any type of MD. But various medications and therapies can help manage symptoms or slow the progression of the disease. Many therapies are specific to one type of MD.

They have been shown to improve muscle strength and may slow the progression of MD.

Prednisone and Emflaza (deflazacort) are examples of corticosteroids. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Emflaza for patients with a type of MD called Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Other medications are approved for other types of MD. For example, the FDA has approvedExondys 51 (eteplirsen) for the treatment of DMD caused by certain mutations. Translarna (ataluren) is a drug approved in Europe, but not in the U.S., to treat DMD caused by another type of mutation … Continue reading
