Our Mission

Duchenne is a genetic and progressive muscle disease. It is the most common disease of degenerative muscle illness.  Due to a genetic defect, the body does not produce an essential protein called dystrophin.  Without this protein, the muscles in the children’s body are rotated daily. At present, there is no cure for DMD.

We, the parents of DMD boys, have established and managed the A.D.I. organization, in order to improve the medical treatment given to our children, and to find a cure for the disease.
Our journey is not simple, the scientific challenge is enormous, however, the source of the disease is known and the mission is possible! We, as DMD boys, parents have the biggest interest to win the disease. With your assistance we will be able to put an end to Duchenne.

Meet our Boys

Our children are heroes. They deal with the disease every day with admirable determination. Every simple day-to-day action requires a huge effort.  For them, to get into the car, climb stairs, play with a friend in the yard – are actually extreme tasks.  Every child has a world of values, hobbies, desires and dreams. Our children climb Mount Everest with determination and success each day anew to fulfill themselves.

Our Projects

Our vision is to live in a better world where children will no longer die of Duchenne. In order to achieve it, our activities are focused on promoting research and development of new treatments – aiming at putting an end to the disease in the near future.   When we had established the organization in 2011, there was no Duchenne study in Israel. Nevertheless, where there is a will, there is an ability. Projects that we have initiated are leading the advancement of Israeli research.  Promoting cooperation and information sharing, as well as improving medical care, are significantly advancing.  There is hope that the day will not be long, before our vision will come true.

Gene therapy

The origin of Duchenne is known to researchers. A minor defect in the gene prevents the production of an essential protein – dystrophin. There are various mutations to the disease, i.e. the defect in each patient can be in another form or letter in the gene…

Inhibitory drugs

A genetic defect creates a deficiency in the production of the dystrophin protein. In the absence of protein, the muscles in the kids’ body are exposed, and they are rotting every day and with every simple motor action. With muscle erosion, a space…

Clinics

 It is known that maintaining a high standard of treatment, tailored to each patient according to his condition, can delay the development of the disease. From the stage of diagnosis, regardless of the patient’s age, it is crucial to…
