Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive disorder that involves loss of strength due to the alterations of dystrophin that helps keep muscle cells intact. It commonly affects young boys and has not witnessed a cure yet. However, various pharma and biotech companies are now on the verge of creating a permanent treatment for this condition.

Meanwhile, Dr. Andrew Brooks, Chief Operating Officer at RUDCR Infinite Biologics, said that their firm is thrilled to add Duchenne to the list of biobanks that could help cure genetic diseases like Duchenne.
