There are a range of inherited muscle degenerative diseases that characterised by muscle wastage and atrophy. Of particular interest are Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD), Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and Kennedy’s disease (SBMA). These, and other similar conditions are characterised by ongoing muscle wastage eventually leading to tremors, loss of mobility, and often respiratory failure leading to death. Imitex’s approach offers the promise of ameliorating muscle wastage, enabling improvements to musculo-skeletal tone, and associated secondary (metabolic pathways).
