Juan,

The viagra trial worsened the heart and was stopped, but the cialis seemed safe and was moving forward.  My doctor told me to proceed with caution, but that the pathway the drug utilizes seems very hopefull to help in DMD

thank you for your input on this, just feel a urgency to do something since my son has a point mutation in exon 31 and not in the hot spot, this cialis trial makes sense and it could really help if the heart does not get harm by the drug, i call one of the trial sites and they weren't sure if it was the course of the disease or the drug viagra. they made it seem that it was probably the course of the disease. risk and benefits, i guess i will try this if my son qualifies, time is not in my side, thank you regina and just in case you can call me if you want to chat about this 479-754-1053 hang in there, the only one thing that no one can take away from us is the memories in life, wish you a happy merry christmas. juan

How long is the trial going?
