I picked it from the fb. yes, prayers.....prayers.

Note in the release...  results expected by the end of 2012, so they must be going to start the trial awfully quick.  No?

My husband is hoping to be a "healthy volunteer" for this since we're here in the UK.

Hi Amrit

This is the kind of news that i wish could be coming our way more often.I am sure for many parents whose kids are unlikely to benefit from the exxon-skipping products that are in trials this will mean everything.Lets keep the hope alive.

I've sent Summit a message, but anyone know if they will accept boys from the US?  We will consider regular visits or even relocating to the UK if necessary... :)

We relocated to the UK (from Texas) and my son is currently in the phase 3 GSK exon skipping trial. Moving to the UK is not an easy process. We were lucky that the company my husband works for is an international one and was able to transfer us over. They took care of getting the visas. We could not have come over if not for that.

Right now, Summit is only recruiting healthy volunteers. I would wait until they're recruiting DMD boys. You never know, they may be able to have the trial in the US, too.

Thanks Laurie!

Actually, I am expecting it to be long painful process.  That's why I'm starting to ask the questions now since it could take many, many months to make the transfer.  I am fortunate to work for a global company and may be able to simply work from our office in London.

Let's keeping hoping and praying that this treatment will prove to be very successful!

That definitely makes things easier, at least with the visa process. Should you find yourself actually making the move, please let me know. I'd be happy to help with any questions you may have.
