In contrast to many current therapeutic approaches to DMD, utrophin modulation has the potential to treat all boys and young men with DMD, regardless of their underlying dystrophin gene mutation.
“The IND clearance for PhaseOut DMD paves the way to expand PhaseOut DMD into the US and will provide access to a wider network of leading physicians in DMD as we seek to improve the lives of patients and families living with this devastating disease,” said Ralf Rosskamp, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Summit. “PhaseOut DMD aims to show the potential benefits of ezutromid as a disease modifying approach for DMD for the first time in patients, and this approach could ultimately benefit the entire DMD patient population.”
Summit expects to begin enrolling patients into US sites in the third quarter of 2016.
