About Duchenne

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a severe muscle disease that affects and weakens the muscles of primarily young boys. Muscle weakness usually begins around the age of two and worsens quickly. Most are unable to walk by the age of 12 and the average life expectancy is 26. Duchenne affects 1 in 4,000 newborn boys in the Netherlands.

Duchenne is caused by a mutation of the dystrophin gene in the X chromosome. The absence of dystrophin causes damage to muscle cells and eventually results in the death of the cell. As a result, children with Duchenne have difficulty walking and have a general problem with other motor skills such as getting up or standing.
