Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is an autoimmune, inherited disorder found mostly in male children that leads to abnormality in walking, difficulty in standing and muscle weakness, and is fatal in almost all cases. However, a female child can also be affected. The global prevalence of Duchenne muscular dystrophy is estimated to be 1 male for 3,500 live male births and is most common in the age group of 1-6 years. Early testing strategies can quickly diagnose this condition and help initiate treatment at an early stage, to slacken the progress of the disease.

Testing for DMD:
- Plasma creatine phospho kinase tests – Measuring the Creatine phospho kinase(CPK) enzyme levels quickly and assuredly assists in the diagnosis of DMD
- Muscle biopsy- A more tedious yet more accurate way of diagnosing DMD is a muscle biopsy performed on any muscle of the concerned child (usually the calf muscle), followed by a microscopic analysis of the same
- Genetic testing- A prophylactic solution to this disease, genetic testing can warn parents beforehand of their risk of bearing children with this disease.
- Electromyography testing (EMG)- EMG testing is used to assess muscle function and serviceability, and is used throughout this disease to assess residual muscle function.

Regional Analysis of Market:
With an increasing incidence of autoimmune conditions and a well established health infrastructure in the United States and Europe, these areas are set to witness growth in the market for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy testing. Muscular dystrophy testing can range from about USD 100 to more than USD 2,000, depending on type and complexity of tests as described above, hence this market will duly grow in developed nations where healthcare infrastructure is developed, awareness levels are high, and disposable incomes are high. Asia Pacific will create new growth opportunities owing to growing awareness and increasing government efforts towards better outcomes.
