Changes in MFM scores of 12 DMD patients treated with corticosteroids and 54 without treatment. The results support the use of MFM in the treatment of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and its use in clinical trials to evaluate patients receiving a therapy. The MFM also help to predict the loss of walk for patients with DMD.
