Global Markets Direct's latest Pharmaceutical and Healthcare disease pipeline guide Becker Muscular Dystrophy
Becker Muscular Dystrophy, or as commonly called as MD or BMD, is a genetic disorder that weakens the muscles and makes them smaller. The most common type is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, but BMD causes less severe problems than that. Symptoms of BMD can be seen when kids are around 10-13 years old and their walking problems become apparent around 15-16 years of age.
BMD rarely causes any health problems until muscle weakness occurs in the pelvic region and hips. Kids with BMD find difficulty with sports, climbing stairs, lifting weights and load. Their calf muscles look bigger than the usual. Becker MD affects even heart muscles, which advances faster than in any other muscles. Becker MD progresses with age; its symptoms worsen slowly as age progresses.
As far as respiration is concerned, breathing muscles are strong enough to avoid any ventilators or mechanical breathing. The cause for Becker MD is due to the protein made by muscle cells, dystrophy in which does not function normally as it should. Usually, the body is capable of repairing these cells but in Becker MD, the cells die instead of being replaced. In the place of the old Becker MD cells, fat and scar tissues get accumulated. Becker MD mostly affects children, especially boys with profound weakness in their limbs.
