My son is 4 and has a deletion of exons 45 & 46; predicted in-frame, so I think we are out of luck for exon skipping! Our hopes are now hanging on utrophin.
Question to Susan: How long ago was the muscle biopsy performed? We are going in a few weeks for one and Dr. Wong has suggested that we can learn quite a bit from this, not just the amt. of dystrophin. Don't know if this "learning" will be b/c of new technology or new info., but if so, you might want to check into how you might benefit from this insight. OR I might be way off base b/c all of this is so confusing for me. Just thought I would reply to your ?. Maybe others who are well versed in this area can add to my lousy 2 cents!!
Cheers, Jill

My son is 11 and has a deletion of exon 45. He was diagnosed six years ago.

My son is 17 and was diagnosed at age 9. He has had two different DNA tests and neither test was able to find his deletions or mutations. One of the tests was done at the City of Hope here in Southern Califonia and is supposed to pick up 98% of deletions/mutations. His Muscle Biopsy results were that no dystrophin was found in the muscle sample tested. Any information on other possible DNA testing would be greatly appreciated.
