Although FSHD is considered one of the most common inherited neuromuscular diseases, there is no specific therapeutic practice for it. So what can we do about it? First, we have to understand the mechanisms of the disease and to identify the crucial links in the chain of molecular reactions that underline FSHD. Furthermore, we have to develop a system to screen various therapeutic approaches, and in the end to generate an animal model where clinical relevance of therapy can be determined.
