Taurine: an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with strong potential benefits for Duchenne muscular dystrophy


Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a fatal muscle wasting disease where current treatments, such as corticosteroids, are limited in efficacy and can cause severe side effects. While much effort is directed at molecular therapies to help replace the missing dystrophin protein, this approach still has limitations and a cost effective and efficacious universal therapy has yet to be developed. In the interim, safe and inexpensive supplements such as taurine, are potential treatments to reduce disease severity.
