In their 20s or earlier the illness causes their death. Not more if the imagined treatment will be validated. The drug used in the actual experiment was Cialis, which is usually used to treat erectile dysfunction in men. The drug improves the flow of blood to the boy’s muscles the way it increases blood flow to the penis of men. This is good. “It looked like a complete correction of the blood flow abnormality” said Ronald Victor. However Cialis causes some side-effects as several boys had long erections while taking the medicine-one for six hours. The drug was given to 10 boys over a short period of time so the results can’t be termed as conclusive. But founding president and CEO of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, Pat Furlong said that Cialis could prove effective enough to become a part of the method to threat Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It needs more study to conclude.
