Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Overview 

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is the most common form of muscular dystrophy in childhood. It is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. It is one of nine types of muscular dystrophy.

DMD is caused by an absence of dystrophin, a protein that helps keep muscle cells intact. Symptom onset is in early childhood, usually between ages 3–5. The disease primarily affects boys, but in rare cases it can affect girls. DMD is inherited as an X-linked disease. X-linked genetic disorders are conditions caused by an abnormal gene on the X chromosome and manifest mostly in males. Females that have a defective gene present on one of their X chromosomes are carriers for that disorder. Carrier females usually do not display symptoms because females have two X chromosomes and only one carries the defective gene. Males have one X chromosome that is inherited from their mother and if a male inherits an X chromosome that contains a defective gene he will develop the disease.

The clinical hallmarks of DMD include weakness and wasting of various voluntary muscles of the body. In most advanced stages of the disease, the heart and gut muscles will be affected. Symptoms of DMD are usually noticed in boys between 1–6 years of age. A steady decline occurs in muscle strength between the ages of 6–11 years. By age 10, braces may be needed for walking. By age 13, most boys with DMD are using a wheelchair full-time. Children with DMD are often late walkers. In toddlers, parents may notice enlarged calf muscles. This enlargement is known as pseudohypertrophy, or ""false enlargement,"" because the muscle tissue is abnormal and may contain scar tissue. A preschooler with DMD may seem clumsy and fall often. Parents also may note that children have trouble climbing stairs, getting up from the floor or running.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Diagnosis

The aim of care around diagnosis is to provide a correct and rapid diagnosis, allowing commencement of suitable interventions, enduring support and education, and minimizing the length and effect of a potentially protracted diagnostic process. Diagnosis should be done by a neuromuscular specialist who can assess the child clinically and can rapidly access and interpret appropriate investigations in the context of the clinical presentation. Family follow-up and support after diagnosis will often be augmented by support from geneticists and genetic counselors.

Suspicion of the diagnosis of DMD should be considered irrespective of family history and is usually triggered in one of three ways, namely, observation of abnormal muscle function in a male child, detection of an increase in serum creatine kinase tested for unrelated indications, after the discovery of increased transaminases (aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase, which are produced by muscle as well as liver cells.

The diagnosis of DMD should thus be considered before liver biopsy in any male child with increased transaminases. Initial symptoms might include delayed walking, frequent falls, or diffi culty with running and climbing stairs. Although DMD is typically diagnosed at around 5 years of age, the diagnosis might be suspected much earlier because of delays in attainment of developmental milestones, such as independent walking or language; such delays have been documented prospectively by following patients with DMD identified by newborn screening.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Treatment

Glucocorticoids, more precisely prednisone and deflazacort, are the main drug treatment for DMD. Corticosteroids have been used for over two decades and they are the only medication that has been shown to increase muscular strength. Ataluren is a newer medicine that has been developed to treat some children with DMD aged five or older who can still walk. Ataluren comes as granules provided in sachets. The contents of each sachet are mixed into liquids or semi-solid food (such as yogurt) and then swallowed.

The main therapeutic strategies for the treatment of DMD includes:

  • Gene replacement or other genetic therapies linked to specific mutations to restore dystrophin production
  • Membrane stabilization and/or upregulation of compensatory proteins
  • Reduction of the inflammatory cascade and/or enhancement of muscle regeneration

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Therapy Assessment

Vamorolone: Santhera

Vamorolone is a first-in-class drug candidate that binds to the same receptors as corticosteroids but modifies the downstream activity of the receptors1,2. This has the potential to ‘dissociate’ efficacy from typical steroid safety concerns and therefore could emerge as a valuable alternative to corticosteroids, the current standard of care in children and adolescent patients with DMD. There is a clear unmet medical need in this patient group as high dose corticosteroids have significant systemic side effects that detract from patient quality of life. On September 2, 2020, Santhera exercised its option and obtained worldwide rights to vamorolone in Duchenne muscular dystrophy and all other indications. Santhera and ReveraGen expect to complete the rolling NDA submission to the U.S. FDA in June 2022.

Givinostat: Italfarmaco

Givinostat, is an HDAC inhibitor (HDACi, a principle candidate, currently being developed for the treatment of DMD and BMD. Since Givinostat acts on the pathogenetic events downstream of the genetic defects, it is potentially a treatment for the whole DMD and BMD population and to counter the disease pathogenetic events in all muscular districts.

Pamrevlumab: Fibrogen

Pamrevlumab is a first-in-class antibody developed by FibroGen to inhibit the activity of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), a common factor in fibrotic and proliferative disorders characterized by persistent and excessive scarring that can lead to organ dysfunction and failure. Pamrevlumab is advancing towards Phase 3 clinical development for the treatment of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and pancreatic cancer and has been granted Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) in each of these indications, and is currently in a Phase 2 trial for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
