If I am not mistaken, it's exon 51... This could not be shipped to the US.. My son deletions 51-55 (not eligible even it was approved in the US. I am very happy for them. This approval gives great momentum for the DMD community around the world
Translarna is for nonsense mutation. This approval is even more frustrating to US citizens. Nice always seemed stricter as far as New Drugs are approved then rest of the world, yet they approve Translarna, but FDA does not even warrant a review. GREAT JOB FDA, YOU ROCK AT HELPING THE KIDS.
