Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy clinical trials at UC Health
1 research study open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18-75
The primary cause of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD), a common adult-onset dystrophy, was recently discovered identifying targets for therapy. As multiple drug companies pursue treatments for FSHD, there is an urgent need to define the clinical trial strategies which will hasten drug development, including creating disease-relevant outcome measures and optimizing inclusion criteria. This proposal will develop two new outcome measures and optimize eligibility criteria by testing 160 patients in 7 sites over a period of 18 months.
