About drisapersen and the clinical development program

Drisapersen, (previously GSK2402968/PRO051), an antisense oligonucleotide which induces exon skipping of exon 51, is currently in-late stage development for DMD. Drisapersen has orphan drug status in the EU, US, Japan and Australia. In June 2013, drisapersen was granted Breakthrough Therapy designation by the US Food and Drug Administration.

The overall drisapersen clinical registration program comprises three double-blind, placebo-controlled studies (DMD114117, DMD114876 and DMD114044) and two long term open-label extension studies (DMD114673 and DMD114349).

About DMD

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a severely debilitating childhood neuromuscular disease that affects up to 1 in 3,500 live male births. This rare disease is caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene, resulting in the absence or defect of the dystrophin protein. Patients suffer from progressive loss of muscle function, often making them wheelchair bound before the age of 12. Respiratory and cardiac muscle can also be affected by the disease. Few patients survive the age of 30.
