CONNECT1-ED051 Participants Needed: PepGen is actively recruiting participants for their study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple ascending intravenous (IV) doses of PGN-EDO51 administered to participants with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Participants must be male by birth, at least 8 years old, and diagnosed with Duchenne amenable to exon 51 skipping. Locations in New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec.

About PGN-EDO51: PepGen’s Enhanced Delivery Oligonucleotide (EDO) technology is engineered to optimize the delivery of therapeutic oligonucleotides, including exon-skipping oligonucleotides, which is a major challenge that limits their efficacy. PGN-EDO51 is being evaluated for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), which is amenable to exon 51 skipping. In 2023, PepGen is planning to initiate two clinical trials to assess the safety and efficacy of repeat doses of PGN-EDO51 in boys and young men living with DMD.
