NCT01099761
First received: April 2, 2010

  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine if ACE-031 is safe and well-tolerated in children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and to select the optimal doses of ACE-031 in terms of safety and pharmacodynamic (PD) activity for designing future studies. [Note: This study was terminated based on preliminary safety data. Pending further analysis of safety data and discussion with health authorities, a new ACE-031 trial will be planned]

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients with adverse events. [ Time Frame: From treatment initiation to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Change in laboratory parameters and vital signs. [ Time Frame: Baseline to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent change in total lean body mass by DXA scan. [ Time Frame: Baseline to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percent change in total body and lumbar spine bone mineral density by DXA scan. [ Time Frame: Baseline to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percent change in muscle strength score by hand-held myometry. [ Time Frame: Baseline to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in distance traveled in 6 minutes (standardized 6-Minute-Walk Test). [ Time Frame: Baseline to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in time to travel 10 meters (standardized 10-Meter-Walk/Run test). [ Time Frame: Baseline to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in pulmonary function tests. [ Time Frame: Baseline to End-of-Study Visit, approximately 24 weeks later. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
