The strength of the registry is you

Your data is critical in the fight to end Duchenne.

Why Join The Duchenne Registry

Advance Research & Speed Development of New Treatments

If you have Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy or if you are a female carrier of Duchenne or Becker, join The Duchenne Registry and your data will help fuel the fight to end Duchenne. We share your anonymous Registry data with researchers to speed the development of new therapies.

You Have the Power to Make a Difference

When you join and update your account in The Duchenne Registry, you are strengthening the power of a 15-year-old network of patient-powered data that will be used to improve care for people living with Duchenne and increase our understanding of the disorder. By sharing your data, you become a citizen scientist by contributing to real scientific research.

Join Patients Around the World

No one should have to navigate a Duchenne diagnosis alone. Be part of the global research network to end Duchenne. The data you enter is not only shared with researchers in the United States, but is also shared with the TREAT-NMD International Neuromuscular Registry, which pools data from thousands of patients worldwide and enables more powerful data analysis and discovery.

Find out About Research Studies & Clinical Trials

Once you register and complete your Medical Surveys, we will let you know when you might be a good fit for research studies and clinical trials. Your data also helps drug developers know the size of the Duchenne population available for trials and helps identify new trial sites, increasing our community’s access to trials and potential therapies.
