The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is a UK-based voluntary research organization dedicated to identifying the causes of muscular dystrophy and allied conditions to develop treatments while working to discover a cure. Muscular dystrophy is a group of rare, genetic, muscle-wasting diseases. In some forms of MD, muscles of the hips and shoulders are weakened, walking abnormalities (ataxia) develop, and learning difficulties may be present. Muscular Dystrophy Campaign was established in 1959 and is affiliated with two other organizations, the European Alliance of MDA and the World Alliance of MDA. It provides funding for several Muscle Centers that are designed to provide comprehensive medical care to individuals with neuromuscular conditions, and to provide researchers within and between the centers with medical data and samples that will assist research.
