Researchers at Duke University develop new therapy for Pompe disease

Five years ago, researchers at Duke University developed the first ever treatment for Pompe disease. Recently, Duke University researchers have developed another therapy for Pompe disease that includes a regular regimen of respiratory muscle workouts using small devices. According to a study of patients who took part in Jones' treatment plan, patients inspiratory muscle strength increased 20 percent during a 12-week period, and their expiratory muscles strengthened 16 percent during that time.
