OBJECTIVE The deletion in the dystrophin gene has been reported for many ethnic groups, but until now the mutations in this gene have not been thoroughly investigated in Saudi patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD). We examined the deletion pattern in the dystrophin gene of the Saudi patients applying multiplex-polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The aim of this study is to describe the outcome of our initial effort to identify mutations in the… CONTINUE READING
