Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
ICER will assess the comparative clinical effectiveness and value of treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This evidence review will examine deflazacort (Emflaza®, PTC Therapeutics) and two exon-skipping therapies: eteplirsen (Exondys 51®, Sarepta) and golodirsen (Sarepta). Eteplirsen was approved by the FDA in September 2016 for patients with a confirmed mutation in the dystrophin gene that is amenable to exon 51 skipping. Sarepta has announced its intention to file for accelerated approval of golodirsen by the end of 2018.
