Aim 1: Prospectively determine the association between LTBP4 polymorphisms and cardiac disease progression.

Aim 2: Examine the impact of LTBP4 IAAM haplotype on MR measures of respiratory muscles and loss of pulmonary function.

Aim 3: Retrospective study of the association between SPP1 and LTBP4 gene polymorphisms and disease progression in the lower extremity muscles in a large DMD cohort.
