Dear friend and brother:

We found out that Hadas has DMD when he was 3 now he is 4.

We give him steriods (15mg) he is 20 kg and also vitamin D and calcium. We are thinking very much to give him blood preasure medicine as well.

Dear Mehboob, dear friend:

Thank you for your email and interest. As you know my son has DMD and I understand yours have BMD what mutation?.

Israel is not advanced in DMD and BMD research though I hope that with regulation change and the support of reasearh in Orphan disease we will start to make some progress.

I really hope that things will move along faster but they are moving thanks to organizations and parents.


I'll be in touch

Best regards to you and your family take care

Please check if Prednisone is available( If DEFZLACORT is not there).Both are steroid only. Also,give some calcium/VIT D syrup. Both of these medicines give some strength to muscles and bones and delay the weakness. As such, these are the medicines which are given in USA/Europe also.
But please note that there are side effects also.So please check with your doctor.
Acoording to me, as your kid is 17 years, you should also give some heart medicine.

Take care.

We are giving Steroid( DEFZLACORT) + Shelcal(Calcium and Vit D Syrup) +Becasule( Multi-vitamin syrup) and Vitcofal(Iron syrup). Apart from that we do physiotherapy and good diet.

As such I had heard of certain doctors in Delhi,Bangalore and Mumbai who are giving stem cell treatment (Mesenchymal Stem cell) to DMD boys. I am still not totally
convinced about the results.
I normally see one Doctor in Chennai( Dr V Vishwanath). He has founded MDA India group (
Apart from that I know 1 doctor in Mumbai and Delhi (Dr IC Verma in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, DELHI)who are working for DMD.

I hope something good will come out in near future(one to one half years).

As such there are mainly 4 type of research is going on.
(1) Exon skipping. Here AVI BioPharma and Prosensa (along with Glaxo) is working.
(2) Myostin inhibitor. Here Acceleron is working with ACE-031. Thsi will help all boys.
(3) Utrophin upregulation. Here Biglacyan is working.
(4) PTC is working for point mutation with PTC-124.
Apart from that certain stem cell trials are planned in Italy.
Also, Dr Mendal in US is planning gene thereapy.

Hi, unfortunately my Doug is not very active now and really can just balance to sit and move his hands only. He is nearly 21. At 8 yrs of age he was too old to start steroids so they only kept him walking until he was 9yrs. He had a lot of supplements for a few years (CoQ10, Creatine, Inositol, Vit E, Vit C as staples), but I don't believe I gave them in large enough doses to be therapeutic so he has no suppliments since early teens. Around Nabeel's age, he started his heart meds, both beta blocker and ace inhibitor and this was a very big improvement in his heart into the normal range. Although very weak, my son is very straight without any back surgery and without any night-time ventilation - I attribute this to daily swimming and diving as a child and to an excellent physiotherapist who will be speaking in Bangalore. How about you, do you think anything in particular has helped your son? Is Bangalore conference a possibility for you?

Hi Nabeel, please share information about this upcoming DMD conference with others in our region.

best regards
