key information

study id #: NCT01491555

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

status: completed


Researchers at Children’s Hospital Boston Neurology Department invite children to participate in a new research study. Researchers are looking for boys ages 2 – 30 with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and healthy boys ages 2 – 30 (without any nerve or muscle concerns) to serve as controls. The study is evaluating a new technique that will test nerve and muscle function. The testing is all pain free. Children participating in the study will come in for 10 visits over two years. Visits will take place every month at first, then less often for the remaining visits. The tests for the study itself take approximately 2hours. If participants are interested or would like to learn more about the study, please call Lavanya Madabusi at 617-919-3554 or Lavanya.Madabusi@childrens.harvard.edu.
