Cardiac Outcome Measures in Children With Muscular Dystrophy
The purpose of the research study is to evaluate different cardiac measures that are obtained by echocardiographic tests in patients with muscular dystrophy.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Becker Muscular Dystrophy
Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
|Official Title:||PITT1109: Cardiac Outcome Measures in Children With Muscular Dystrophy|
Prospective collection of blood sample for BNP measurements.
|Study Start Date:||January 2010|
|Study Completion Date:||May 2012|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The research study will include 50 participants aged 8 to 18 years old (before 18th birthday) with Duchenne, Becker, or autosomal recessive limb-girdle (specifically: LGMD 2C-2F and 2I) muscular dystrophies.
Participants will be seen in one of five Cooperative International Neuromuscular Research Group (CINRG) centers located in the United States.
All study assessments will be completed in the same day and include reviewing past medical and surgical history, collecting vital signs, collecting cardiac measures through echocardiographic tests.
