Date:2/1/2011

ein.  The new PPMD grant will support medicinal chemistry efforts to improve the chemical, biological and pharmaceutical properties of these early molecules with the goal of identifying a development candidate for clinical studies.

"We are pleased to continue and expand our collaboration with PPMD in our ongoing effort to bring new treatments to Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy patients," stated Stuart W. Peltz, Ph.D., President & CEO of PTC Therapeutics.  "Our commitment to DBMD patients started more than a decade ago when we initiated our nonsense suppression program.  Those efforts led to ataluren, which has the potential to be the first therapy to treat the underlying cause of nonsense mutation DBMD.  Our experience developing ataluren will be beneficial to SERCA2a and our other neuromuscular programs as we move forward in development.  Our goal is to develop safe and effective treatments for all patients with DBMD."
