Market Definition: 

Bulbospinal muscular atrophy is also known as Kennedy’s disease, a rare adult-onset form of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is an X-linked autosomal recessive progressive neurodegenerative disorder that causes weakening and wasting of the proximal and bulbar muscles. The condition occurs due to loss of nerve cells in the brain stem and spinal cord, this result in stoppage of messages from brain to muscles for movement. Patients with bulbospinal muscular atrophy have difficulty in speaking, standing, walking and controlling their head movements. In worse condition patients can have trouble swallowing and breathing. This disorder mainly affects men and does not occur in females, who are protected by their low levels of testosterone in the body, accounting for the sex-limited inheritance pattern of this disorder.
