Abstract

Genetic disorders affect many people, and muscular dystrophy is a disorder that can greatly decrease the quality of life. Finding treatment to stop or prevent the loss of muscle function by the dystrophin protein is a top goal for scientists in this field. The treatment involves stem cell transplantation by intravenous injection, or local muscle injections. Various stem cells are under consideration, with analysis focusing on the specific stem cells’ effectiveness and ability to be used as a treatment.
