On this day, the World Duchenne Organization raises awareness for Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy (DMD/BMD) around the globe. The DMD gene, encoding for the dystrophin protein, is the longest human gene known, since it consists of 79 exons. Because of this, World Duchenne Day is celebrated today.

This year is focused on ‘Adult Life & Duchenne’. Over the past decades, life expectancy of individuals affected by Duchenne MD has increased significantly, and adults with Duchenne are not an exception anymore. Adult life with Duchenne comes with new challenges and opportunities as well as with new medical issues.

At ASPHALION we would like to help raise awareness about # DMD/BMD. Our team´s mission is our passion: working together with our clients in order to generate ideas and implement solutions that contribute to improving health in all our lives. Today we would like to join the World Duchenne Organization to advocate for young adults and adults with Duchenne to live their lives to the fullest.

You can find more information about DMD/BMD: Vimeo DMD/BMD video.
