The diagnostic services expanded from simple multiplex PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction)..

Three gene therapeutic strategies considered to be “the most advanced” presently under study as possible DMD treatments:

Children's Speaks

  • MDCRC has given me lot of confidence and hope in life. They have made me accept my disorder and how to take it forwad in life. MDCRC is offering everything free of cost which is a great boon to the society. They have reached out to the rural population and have educated us about the disorder.

  • I love to visit MDCRC... i come here for rehab sessions and also for MD care... sometimes I visit here for AVP assessment also. I feel at home to visit MDCRC. Everyone is very friendly and cheerful, I am thankful to Lakshmi madam and the team for all that they are doing for me. Thanks to all once again.

  • Initially MDCRC meant a rehab Centre for me.....nothing much. But now I feel so close to my heart for all that they are doing for me....my parents even said they do all free of cost for me. I wish lots of kids come here so that all will benefit from MDCRC.

  • MDCRC is putting in all its effort to end Duchenne through its identification and prevention programs. They are the only organisation in India offering all its services and more under one roof! I am fortunate to be a part of this sensitive committed team.
