My friend has been diagnosed with polymyositis. He explained me a little about it. It is some form of autoimmune disease. Immune cells attack muscle cells. I would like to know what the best treatment option there is. I hope there is something more than medications. I guess physical therapy can also be important.

I am sorry to hear that. The main approach in treatment is using corticosteroids. Those are drugs related to cortisone. They can be given orally or intravenously. On the other hand, they are not always powerful. In certain cases, immunosuppressive drugs are used. Those would be drugs like cyclosporine. Drugs are not only option. Physical therapy is also very important. I hope your friend will be all right.
