Hi Lisa- Is there anywhere we can private mess. regarding our involvement in a clinical trial? Not sure the whole world wants to hear the "good, bad and the ugly".

Hi Lisa!  I saw your post about starting your now 4 year old on steroids and that he qualifies for exon skipping 51.  My son is 6, but will be 7 in March.  I ended up starting Gavin at 3.5, with Dr. Wong.  She was going to wait, however we, my family and I decided to start then at a low dose of a 6mg tab of Defalzacort daily.  We are very glad we did that and that although he is small, he still grows.  He has grown 2 inches this year.  He has not lost strength, they have not raised his dose.  We are however in the exon skipping trial and have been for a year and now  and starting open label in 2 weeks.  We are in the international trial in Canada.   Gavin's deletion is 48-50.

Hi Lisa.I hope you and your family are doing good. I need your advise. I have 3 years old son with DMD. Here we could not find right specialist but visited paediatrician dr who never deal with this kind of patient. So we are the first patient for her. My son was taking Calcium with Vit D3,CoQ 50mg,Unjury protein mix powder,Omega3 with Vit D and multivit as a child dose. After visit our paediatrician ,she told as to give him an adult dose. I did some research in net. But still i would like to get some advise who is already with experience. Could you tell me please, what kind of supplements are you giving for your son and how much the dose? I know your son also 3 years old. I hope i can manage some how till we find right specialist for my son. I really appreciate your advise

Hi Lisa

Thanks for the information, Joaquin just started also Protandim and Idebenone. What we don't know is to start the deflazacort . local dr. recommended us 30mg each 48hrs

Nice to know that Seth and Joaquin are same age. Lets keep in touch.

Kind regards
