Description

Seeking boys and men with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) or Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD) to provide samples including blood, plasma, serum, urine, as well as the remainders of tissue samples collected as part of their usual clinical care for a biorepository.

Overview

We are collecting biological samples including an annual blood plasma and serum sample and a urine sample from volunteers with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD) to support future scientific investigation into these rare disorders.

What we're hoping for

We hope to collect biological samples from boys and men with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) to support future scientific investigation.
