Comparative Study of Clinical Endpoint in DMD: Handheld Myometry (HHM) Versus CINRG Quantitative Measurement System (CQMS)

key information

study id #: NCT01125709

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

status: completed


The aim of the proposed research is to compare two commonly used pediatric strength testing measures: handheld myometry (HHM) and CINRG Quantitative Measurement System (CQMS), with the goal of identifying a sensitive and valid tool for measuring muscle strength in children with DMD. The data obtained from this study will be used to make recommendations for strength measurement endpoints in prospective muscular dystrophy trials and provide more reliable and accurate recommendations in the clinic for strength assessment. This study will be performed at six participating sites in the Cooperative International Neuromuscular Research Group (CINRG).
