A Study to Assess Dystrophin Levels in Participants With Nonsense Mutation Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (nmDMD)

key information

study id #: NCT03648827

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

status: active, not recruiting

purpose:

This study is designed to evaluate the ability of ataluren to increase dystrophin protein levels in muscle cells of participants with nmDMD. The study will evaluate the levels of dystrophin before and after 40 weeks of ataluren therapy using muscle biopsies and two validated assay methods, electrochemiluminescence (ECL) and immunohistochemistry.

intervention: Ataluren

mechanism of action: Stop codon read through to promote dystrophin production
