  • These strategies are relevant in ALS, Becker MD, centronuclear myopathies/myotubular myopathy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, congenital MD, Dejerine-Sottas disease, distal MD (Miyoshi myopathy), Duchenne MD, facioscapulohumeral MD, Friedreich’s ataxia, limb-girdle MD, myotonic MD and spinal muscular atrophy.
