We thank Dr. Josef Finsterer for his comments that completed our paper11. Werneck LC, Lorenzoni PJ, Ducci RD, Fustes OH, Kay CSK, Scola RH. Duchenne muscular dystrophy: an historical treatment review. Arq Neuropsiquiatr. 2019 Sep;77(8):579-89. https://doi.org/10.1590/0004-282X20190088

.

The scope of the paper was to present a review of pharmacological therapy of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). We agree that the points raised by Dr. Finsterer are very important, as we point out in the conclusion of the paper. Due to policies of the Arquivos de Neuropsiquiatria, the paper was in the limit of words and references for review articles. For this reason, it was not possible to extend the discussion about investigation and treatment of other aspects of DMD as he has pointed out and as it is performed in our center22.
