PTC Therapeutics Announces Translarna™ Access Program in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy for Siblings of Patients Participating in PTC Clinical Trials

PTC Therapeutics, Inc. announced that it will make Translarna available for siblings of patients in certain open label PTC clinical trials for nonsense mutation Duchenne muscular dystrophy (nmDMD). Translarna will be made available to these siblings in advance of commercial availability in their regions, after a treating physician and the patient or guardian make a clinical decision to use Translarna, and consistent with any other applicable regulatory requirements. Translarna, discovered and developed by PTC Therapeutics, Inc., is a protein restoration therapy designed to enable the formation of a functioning protein in patients with genetic disorders caused by a nonsense mutation. A nonsense mutation is an alteration in the genetic code that prematurely halts the synthesis of an essential protein. The resulting disorder is determined by which protein cannot be expressed in its entirety and is no longer functional, such as dystrophin in Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Translarna is licensed in the European Economic Area for the treatment of nonsense mutation Duchenne muscular dystrophy in ambulatory patients aged five years and older. Translarna is an investigational new drug in the United States. The development of Translarna has been supported by grants from Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics Inc. (the nonprofit affiliate of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation); Muscular Dystrophy Association; FDA'sOffice of Orphan Products Development; National Center for Research Resources; National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; and Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy.
