A Low Interventional Study to Monitor Activity Using Wearable Sensors in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
purpose: The purpose of this low interventional study is to collect data on everyday movement in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) using wearable activity sensors. The activity sensors could provide useful information beyond what is currently collected by functional (movement, strength) assessments in clinic. This information can help with the understanding of the impact of DMD, and perhaps with how possible treatments can affect this impact....
A Natural History Study In Chinese Male Patients With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
purpose: This is a multicenter, prospective, single cohort study designed to describe the natural history of DMD in Chinese male patients. A total of approximately 330 subjects will be enrolled with the target number of subjects in each group as below: • Group 1, subjects aged <6 years, 100 subjects; • Group 2, subjects aged >=6 years and <12 years, 180 subjects; • Group 3, subjects aged >=12 years, 50 subjects...
A Phase 3 Trial of Pamrevlumab or Placebo in Combination With Systemic Corticosteroids, in Subjects With Non-ambulatory Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of pamrevlumab versus placebo in combination with systemic corticosteroids in subjects with non-ambulatory Duchenne muscular dystrophy (age 12 years and older).
A Registered Cohort Study on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Dystrophinopathy is a term of X-linked recessive genetic disease, including Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Becker Muscular Dystrophy, and the X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy. The aim of this study is to determine the clinical spectrum and natural progression of dystrophinopathy in a prospective multicenter natural history study, to assess the clinical, genetic of patients with dystrophinopathy to optimize clinical management.

A Study to Compare Safety and Efficacy of a High Dose of Eteplirsen in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) Patients
purpose: This study will be comprised of 2 parts: Part 1 will be conducted to evaluate the safety and tolerability of two doses (high dose level 1 and high dose level 2) of eteplirsen in approximately 8 patients; Part 2 will be conducted for the selection of a high dose (high dose level 1 vs high dose level 2) (dose finding phase), and its comparison with the 30 mg/kg dose of eteplirsen (dose comparison phase), in approximately 144 DMD patients with ge...

Aerobic Exercise in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
purpose: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is the most common neuromuscular disease in childhood with an estimate incidence of 1 in 3500 to 5000 male births. The effect of aerobic training on muscle architectural properties and motor functions such as muscle activation is not clear in DMD. The aim of this study is to compare with children with DMD and healthy peers in terms of muscle architectural properties and motor functions, and investigate the eff...
