Float Brasil launches new “Detetive Duchenne” campaign

Float Health Brasil launched “Detetive Duchenne”, the new awareness campaign for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The disease symptoms are often ignored due to general lack of knowledge about this problem, and this means that the diagnosis in Brazil is delayed from 5 to 7 years.

With the participation of the Aliança Distrofia Brasil (Dystrophy Alliance Brazil) and the support of the Duchenne Movement and PTC, we believe that the dissemination of information, helping symptom recognition, will trigger major changes in the Brazilian reality for this disease.

Watch the video and access the website of the campaign to know more about this cause.

Romário with Float Brasil embracing the cause “Movimento Duchenne”

Romário, the Brazilian ex-football player embraced “Movimento Duchenne” the PTC Therapeutic’s new campaign, promoted by Float Health in Brazil.

The striker, who was World Champion in 1994, will now “tackle” disease awareness towards Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a rare and neurodegenerative disease affecting male children during their yearly years.

The online platform “Movimento Duchenne” aims to be a direct channel of communication towards patients, relatives and carers, and all of those who wish to learn more about this condition, increasing their overall knowledge on the disease in order to help an early diagnosis and subsequent treatment.

The platform will be available online soon at
