Date:4/17/2013

em intact, DMD eventually weakens all voluntary muscles, and the heart and breathing muscles.  DMD affects approximately 1 in 3,500 boys with an estimated patient population exceeding 50,000 worldwide."We are very pleased to have been selected by the MDA to receive funding which will support the advancement of ARM210," said Dr. Sapan Shah , President and CEO of ARMGO Pharma.  "We are excited at the possibility to expand our Rycal program into skeletal muscle diseases such as DMD, where new treatment options for patients are desperately needed." 

"This is a very interesting potential therapeutic," said Jane Larkindale, MDA's vice president for research.  "It works in a different way than the other potential therapeutics in development, which suggests that in addition to being effective on its own, it also might be able to be added on to other treatments, when other treatments become available."
