Brief Summary This study is being performed as a post-approval safety study (PASS), per the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA), to gather data on Translarna (ataluren) safety, effectiveness, and prescription patterns in routine clinical practice. Detailed Description This is a multicenter, observational study of participants receiving Translarna based on inclusion of their data in a registry. This study is intended to enroll 270 participants across ~50 care centers in Europe and other regions over a period of ~ 2 years. The study population will include participants who are receiving usual care treatment with commercial supply of Translarna (or receiving care within a named participant early access program) and who provide consent. Participants will be followed for at least 5 years from their date of enrollment. Safety and efficacy data will be collected in conjunction with routine visits conducted as per usual care. Although there...

Brief Summary The Fabry Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Fabry disease, irrespective of treatment status. No experimental intervention is involved; patients in the Registry undergo clinical assessments and receive care as determined by the patient's treating physician. The primary objectives of the Registry are: To enhance the understanding of the variability, progression, and natural history of Fabry disease, including heterozygous females with the disease; To assist the Fabry medical community with the development of recommendations for monitoring patients and reports on patient outcomes to help optimize patient care; To characterize and describe the Fabry population as a whole; To evaluate the long-term safety and effectiveness of Fabrazyme® Fabry Pregnancy Sub-registry: This Sub-registry is a multicenter, international, longitudinal, observational, and voluntary program designed to track pregnancy outcomes for any pregnant woman enrolled in the Fabry Registry, regardless of...

Brief Summary Fabry disease is a rare metabolic condition characterised by the widespread deposition of sphingolipids in multiple organ systems. Cardiac involvement is common, it occurs in fifty percent of patients and it is the leading cause of death. Despite this, heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular system) manifestations of Fabry disease remain poorly characterised, and it remains unclear which patients benefit from therapy, or when therapy should be initiated. Migalastat is increasingly used to treat fabry disease however the impact of Migalastat on the cardiovascular system is poorly understood. Detailed assessment of the impact of Migalastat on heart and blood vessel structure and function is urgently needed. This observational study will use state of the art, non-invasive investigations to provide greater understanding of the cardiovascular manifestations of Fabry disease and the effects of Migalastat. It will provide insight into which patients respond more effectively to Migalastat, which in turn will...

Detailed Description The main objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of SRP-4045 and SRP-4053 compared to placebo in participants with DMD with out-of-frame deletion mutations amenable to skipping exon 45 and exon 53, respectively. This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of SRP-4045 and SRP-4053. Eligible participants with out-of-frame deletion mutations amenable to exon 45 or 53 skipping will be randomized to receive once weekly intravenous (IV) infusions of 30 milligrams/kilograms (mg/kg) SRP-4045 or 30 mg/kg SRP-4053 respectively (combined-active group) or placebo for up to 96 weeks (the placebo-controlled period of the trial). This will be followed by an open-label extension period in which all participants will receive open-label active treatment for 48 weeks (up to Week 144 of study). The study will enroll approximately 222 participants. Twice as many participants will be randomized to receive active treatment as will receive...

Detailed Description This is a multinational, open-label study to assess the safety and efficacy of FLT190 in up to 15 adult male participants with classical Fabry disease. Patients who provide consent to participate in this study will be screened for eligibility. Eligible patients will attend the study site on the day prior to infusion (Day -1) for a baseline visit. On Day 0, FLT190 will be administered as a single dose, slow intravenous infusion. Following FLT190 treatment the patient will be discharged from the investigational site and will continue to be monitored at outpatient visits for a period of 9 months; following which, the patient will enter a period of long-term follow-up conducted under a separate protocol. The study will be conducted in 2 parts; Part 1: Enrolment of previously treated patients (Dose escalation) Part 2: Enrolment of previously untreated patients (Dose expansion).

ASTRAEUS: A 12-week Study Treating Participants Who Have alpha1-antitrypsin-related COPD With Alvelestat (MPH966) or Placebo The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of alvelestat (an oral neutrophil elastase inhibitor) on blood and sputum biomarkers in patients with Pizz or null genotype alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficient lung disease. Change in a number of different blood and sputum biomarkers related to lung damage, inflammation and elastase activity will be measured over a 12 week period. The effect on lung function and respiratory symptoms will also be measured.

Phase III Study With Idebenone in Patients With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (SIDEROS-E) The purpose of the study is to assess the long-term safety and efficacy of idebenone in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) who completed the SIDEROS study. The study is an open-label, single-group, multi-center extension study in patients with DMD receiving glucocorticoid steroids who participated in the SIDEROS study and who meet all the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria for this extension study. The study consists of 4 study visits scheduled every 6 months (Visit 1/Baseline, Visit 2/Week 26, Visit 3/ Week 52 and Visit 4/ Week 78), and a follow-up visit 4 weeks after treatment discontinuation. Visit 8/Week 78 in SIDEROS study is also SIDEROS-E Visit 1/Baseline.

The study seeks to further understand the experiences, sibling relationships, wellbeing and the needs of adults who have a brother or sister with a learning or developmental disability. By learning/developmental disability, we mean: Autism, Cerebral palsy, Fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, genetic disorders etc. Your brother or sister may have one of these conditions, or several. We will refer to these conditions collectively as learning/developmental disabilities throughout this study. If you agree, you will complete an online survey about these topics. We also want to explore adult siblings' caregiving role or their expectations for caring in the future, as well as the support needs of siblings of people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. This is important, because it will help us consider ways to support the wellbeing of siblings of people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and to support whatever role they decide to take in the lives of their brothers and sisters.
