[Comment] How glucocorticoids change life in Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Chronic glucocorticoid treatment is well anchored in the standards of care for Duchenne muscular dystrophy and is supported by evidence of efficacy in short-term randomised controlled trials.1,2 In clinical practice, different compounds are prescribed in a range of doses and regimens and are most often tailored to the individual side-effect profile because there is a paucity of strong data to guide duration of treatment and regimen, with only non-randomised studies and retrospective studies showing evidence of functional benefit or effect on survival.
