We will be traveling to Cincinnati on August 13th for Jacob to have the muscle biopsy and the following week on the 20th and 21st for him to start the medication/placebo in the current trial. We are very excited and hopeful that the PTC124 will help Jacob and the other little guys like him have a longer and better quality of life. We have concerns also but the alternative is to do nothing and we can't do that.

We wish you and all the other little guys like him good luck and great health! Please let us know how things are going for Jacob as he begins this historic scientific journey. Even though PTC124 won't help my son we will be watching these trials and praying for a breakthrough for at least some in our DMD family.

You are correct, doing nothing is not an option.
all my best,

Thank you for your reply. I know there is a lot of research out there for other causes for DMD and I pray they'll come soon. We pray everyday for all our little boys. We'll keep you posted as we go.

Hi Linda, our son Brandon is halfway through the PTC 124 trial at Cincinnati, we have had a great experience with Dr. Wong and the trial cordinator Paula Morehart.

Both Paula and Dr. Wong are terrific!! We just got back from Cinncy on Friday and Jacob took his first dose of PTC124 on Thursday. He hates the taste so we have to work with him to get it down. Have you noticed any difference in Brandon's stamina or strength? I know we're all wondering whether our sons are taking the real thing or the placebo. Please stay in touch and we'll do the same.

Linda,
I think we all have our fingers crossed for you. I realize participation in the clinical trial will not be easy, but we are all pulling for you and very (very) thankful. Please let us know how things are going.
Sincerely,
Pat Furlong
So by halfway through, do you mean that you have already taken PTC 124 for almost 24 weeks? It would be nice to hear how things are going for your son and the improvements that you have seen in him.

Thank

Larry
