The goal of the one-year study was to determine the ability of the six-minute walk test (6MWT) to detect changes in walking ability in boys with DBMD and compare it to healthy boys of similar age, height and weight.
At 52 weeks, boys with DBMD experienced a loss of 57 meters in mean 6MWD compared with an improvement of 13 meters in healthy boys.
At baseline, boys with DBMD had significantly reduced walking ability compared to healthy boys at baseline.
Two boys with DBMD lost independent ambulation during the study.
The first registration-directed study in patients with DBMD, the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 2b trial was designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of ataluren in patients with nmDBMD.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is proud to provide $1 million in funding towards this ground-breaking study in DBMD patients who have lost the ability to walk," said Valerie Cwik, M.
