Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy clinical trials at University of California Health
3 in progress, 2 open to eligible people
“Volunteer for research and contribute to discoveries that may improve health care for you, your family, and your community!”
open to eligible people ages 4 years and up
This study will follow participants who are screened and confirmed with a genetic diagnosis of Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2E (LGMD2E/R4), Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2D (LGMD2D/R3), or Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2C (LGMD2C/R5). These enrolled participants will be followed to evaluate mobility and pulmonary function for up to 3 years after enrollment. Additional participant data will be collected from the time the individual began experiencing LGMD symptoms to the present.
at UC Davis UCSD
open to eligible people ages 4-65
Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy comprise a group of disorders made up of over 30 mutations which share a common phenotype of progressive weakness of the shoulder and hip girdle muscles. While the individual genetic mutations are rare, as a cohort, LGMDs are one of the four most common muscular dystrophies. The overall goal of project 1 is to define the key phenotypes as measured by standard clinical outcome assessments (COAs) for limb girdle muscular dystrophies (LGMD) to hasten therapeutic development.

Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The overall goal of this natural history study is to define the key LGMD2i phenotypes as measured by standard clinical outcome assessments (COAs), and to validate a muscle biomarker for LGMD2i to support therapeutic development.
