The Jett Foundation is thrilled to collaborate with so many industry partners who are working towards potential treatments for Duchenne. Read more about their recent updates:
Sarepta Therapeutics announced that it plans to provide FDA with new dystrophin data from the PROMOVI study over the next few weeks to facilitate the agency's review of eteplirsen's New Drug Application (NDA). This news comes after the announcement that FDA would be unable to come to a decision on eteplirsen's NDA by the May 26, 2016 Prescription Drug User Fee (PDUFA) deadline. If you have any questions about Sarepta's Duchenne programs, please contact Sarepta's patient advocacy manger Kara Boniface, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
BioMarin Pharmaceuticals announced that it is withdrawing it's Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) in Europe for Kyndrisa (drisapersen) and intends to discontinue all clinical and regulatory development of Kyndrisa as well as the three other first-generation follow-on products in phase 2 studies. If you have any questions for BioMarin please contact BioMarin's patient advocacy team (email@example.com).
