AVI Summary Announcement - PPMD Community

AVI Summary Announcement - PPMD Community: Results
Results have demonstrated the following:

The group receiving Eteplirsen 30 mg/kg/week over 24 weeks resulted in a 22.5% increase in dystrophin on muscle biopsy, exceeding the company’s expectations. There was no increase in dystrophin in the placebo group.
The group receiving Eteplirsen 50mg/kg/week did not show an increase in dystrophin at 12 weeks, despite the higher dose.
The dystrophin produced appears to be new, novel dystrophin producing muscle fibers of normal length and consistency. The dystrophin appears to be diffusely distributed throughout the muscle biopsy.
There was no change in the clinical outcomes (6 minute walk test, Gower’s maneuver, 10 meter run) in the treatment group at 12 or 24 weeks.
Doses were well tolerated and there were no serious side effects to the drug at either doses.
