Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (“DMD”) is a disease that causes progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. DMD is a genetic disorder causing muscle wasting that only affects boys. It is caused by a lack of protein which leads to a break down in muscle fibres. The condition is progressive and causes muscles to weaken gradually.
Myasthenia Gravis (“MG”) is a rare autoimmune disorder that causes weakness of certain muscles.
Motor Neuron Disease (“MND”) or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (“ALS”) is a progressive neurological disease that affects the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord impacting voluntary muscle movement.
