Can perindopril be used for becker muscular dystrophy to delay heart failure?
20 Nov 2009
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.
