Muscular Dystrophy: Disease Bioinformatics

Muscular dystrophy refers to a group of over 30 progressive muscle weakening disorders that are often disabling. Most forms of muscular dystrophy have symptoms that begin in early childhood, but some have symptoms that do not appear until early to late adulthood. The most common form of muscular dystrophy is Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which affects approximately 1 in 3,500 males. Girls are less affected by the common types of muscular dystrophy, which are inherited in an X-linked manner. There is no cure for any type of muscular dystrophy, and treatment is supportive and often includes use of wheelchairs, walkers, and breathing aids. Many forms of muscular dystrophy have an average life expectancy of late teens to early twenties, but with the introduction of supportive care and more information available about the disorders, the life expectancy is increasing.
