The intent of this protocol is to provide continued access to vamorolone for subjects in the United States who Have Completed the VBP15-LTE or VBP15- 004 protocols (and are thereby ineligible to enroll in another trial of vamorolone therapy), during the time a new drug application for vamorolone is under preparation and review
Condition or disease
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Vamorolone will be shipped to the subject's family by the study site. The patient will receive standard of care treatment and procedures for management of DMD. Treating Physicians participating in the expanded access program are required to collect and document any physician, patient, or caregiver reported safety events and report to the Sponsor. The subject's dose of vamorolone may be increased or decreased within a range of 2.0 to 6.0 mg/kg/day (only doses of 2 mg/kg, 4 mg/kg and 6 mg/kg are allowed), given once daily. Administration of vamorolone (taken with an 8 ounce (240 ml) glass of full fat milk, or equivalent high-fat food portion) will be unchanged from the VBP15-LTE or VBP15-004 studies. In the absence of safety concerns, and while this Expaneded Access protocol is active, vamorolone may be provided indefinitely or until approval, provided that the Treating Physician and family agrees that continued administration of vamorolone is in the best interest of the child
