I am suffering from muscular dystrophy for long time
I am suffering from muscular dystrophy for long time. Is any research/clinical trials going on anywhere for re-generation of muscle by means of gene therapy?

RE: I am suffering from muscular dystrophy for long time
Some clinical trials for muscular dystrophy are going on. There are SOME muscular dystrophy websites where all they do is research and devise new ways of curing and treating MD, to include lists of trials, and also links to those trials. Some kinds of MD are inherited, those young adult men get this in their teens and the gene is passed from the mother. So, there is a genetic component for some kinds of MD.

Please go to a good general doctor on a regular basis, because sometimes muscular dystrophy is not what takes the lives of people who have it, rather it is other physical problems that arise in the normal populations, that can be missed because everyone is so focused on the MD.

But to find those websites, do a general online search with the words "muscular dystrophy" or "MD trials" or "MDA," and you can find out more about the genetic research situation. At some of those websites, particularly if you can find a government website for it, they will give clinical trials going on for people who have MD.
