Research of Biomarkers in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Patients

key information

study id #: NCT01380964

condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

status: completed

purpose:

The purpose of this study is to identify potential biomarkers for the diagnosis, disease progression assessment and response to treatment in patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

mechanism of action: No pharmaceutical intervention

results: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/results/NCT01380964

last updated: November 21, 2018

study details

start date: June 2011

estimated completion: December 2015

size / enrollment: 220

primary outcomes:

  • IBiSD aims to identify and validate new and disease-specific biomarkers. [ Time Frame: End of study ]
    This study will establish the relevance of urinary and blood biomarkers for the diagnosis, follow-up and assessment of treatment response in patients with DMD (IBiSD1, 2 and 4). IBiSD will also attempt to establish the seroprevalence to the different strains of AAV in patients with DMD (IBiSD3).
