A study to assess the efficacy and safety of a drug named Givinostat in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Goal of this study
To treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disease due to the absence of a protein called dystrophin. DMD is characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness, and is due to deterioration of muscle cells which are important for body movement. This study will investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of a drug named Givinostat in patients with DMD. Givinostat will be given to the patient through the mouth twice daily every day for a period of 19months.
