Study of SRP-4045 and SRP-4053 in Participants With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) (ESSENCE)
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy / Posted 1 month ago
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 placebo (2:1 randomization).
Clinical efficacy will be assessed at regularly scheduled study visits, including functional tests, such as the 6-minute walk test (6MWT). All participants will undergo a muscle biopsy at baseline and a second muscle biopsy either at Week 48 or Week 96.
Safety will be assessed through the collection of adverse events (AEs), laboratory tests, electrocardiograms (ECGs), echocardiograms (ECHOs), vital signs, and physical examinations throughout the study.
Blood samples will be taken periodically throughout the study to assess the pharmacokinetics of both drugs.
