From my research Becker's Muscular Dystrophy is very similar to Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, except that it gets worse at a much slower rate.

I couldn't find any information about Perindopril being used in Becker's Muscular dystrophy but it is certainly used in Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy with success to preserve left ventricular function. So I am assuming is is used in Becker's Muscular Dystrophy as well.
