Study of a drug named Edasalonexent in boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD)
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 and safety of a drug named Edasalonexent in patients with DMD. Edasalonexent will be given to the patient through the mouth three times daily every day for a period of 52 weeks.
