Trial of Pamrevlumab (FG-3019), in Non-Ambulatory Subjects With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)
a study on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
This is a Phase 2, open-label, single arm trial of pamrevlumab (FG-3019) to estimate pamrevlumab's safety and efficacy in non-ambulatory subjects with DMD.
Trial of Pamrevlumab (FG-3019), a Monoclonal Antibody to Connective Tissue Growth Factor, in Non-Ambulatory Subjects With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Each subject will receive pamrevlumab (35 mg/kg) every two weeks by intravenous infusion for at least one year. Subjects may continue on the study for an additional 6 months (for a total of a year and a half) if their pulmonary function tests show stabilization or improvement in the first 52 weeks of treatment and the FibroGen Medical Monitor approves of their continuing. All subjects will be closely monitored for safety. Efficacy assessments will be performed routinely over the course of the study.
