Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/01/2015 -- Report forecast the global Duchenne muscular dystrophy drugs market to grow at a CAGR of 152.3% over the period 2014-2019.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is an X-linked disease, which generally affects the male population. It is characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. The disease is caused due to mutations in the dystrophin gene, which result in the lack of production of dystrophin (a protein essential for maintaining healthy muscle function) in individuals. The lack of dystrophin weakens muscle function, causes loss of ambulation, harms the respiratory and cardiac function, and ultimately leads to death.

The main symptoms of this condition appears in childhood and includes delay of motor functions; progressive muscle weakness; muscle contractures in legs; and muscle weakness in arms, neck, and more severely in the lower half of the body. The bones also develop peculiarly, causing skeletal deformities in the patient. Occurrences of pseudo-hypertrophy, cardiomyopathy, and breathing complications are some of the other symptoms of this condition.
