Promising treatment approaches have been developed in the laboratory and their benefit is currently tested in clinical trials.
Research into neuromuscular conditions carried out particularly in the last 20 years has given scientists better insight into how muscles function and the underlying causes of muscle-wasting conditions. Scientists and clinicians are beginning to express cautious optimism that efficient treatments might be available in the near future.
The fact that clinical trials are happening is of huge importance to many of our families and supporters. However information is sometimes hard to find and difficult to understand – key factors in our decision to develop a resource that provides information about trials focused solely on muscle-wasting conditions.
