Defeat Duchenne Canada is pleased to share news from Edgewise Therapeutics regarding positive top-line results from their EDG-5506, a small molecule myosin inhibitor, Phase 1 Study in Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy. Although still early stages, we are very encouraged by these results and glad to see the emphasis on Becker muscular dystrophy, a large unmet need in our community. We hope to see more trial opportunities coming to Canada and remain committed to informing our community when they do.
