Rochester leads international effort to improve muscular dystrophy treatment
Date:9/3/2010

T-NMD is headed by Bushby, who is Action Research Professor of Neuromuscular Genetics at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom.

Bushby and Griggs are leading the clinical aspects of the new study. Michael McDermott, Ph.D., professor of Biostatistics and Neurology, and Rabi Tawil, M.D., professor of Neurology, are co-leaders of biostatistical analysis and data management.

The team from Rochester also includes Barbara Herr, assistant professor of Neurology, manager of the U.S. portion of the project; associate project manager Christine Annis; Shree Pandya, lead U.S. physical therapist; Mary Brown, Heart Research Program manager; William Martens, data manager; and Emma Ciafaloni, M.D., associate professor of Neurology, who will lead the study of patients in Rochester.

Griggs is central to the international effort to find an effective treatment for the disease. Last week, for readers of the journal Lancet Neurology, Griggs was asked to put into perspective new findings from a study of the drug cyclosporine, which recently proved safe but not effective for patients. Griggs also served as the head of the data and safety monitoring board for a study of an investigational drug called ataluren conducted by PTC Therapeutics; earlier this year the company announced that the drug, though safe, failed to help patients in the ways doctors had hoped. Analysis of those data continues.
