Hereditary Inclusion Body Myopathy-Disease Monitoring (HIBM-DMP): A Combined Registry and Prospective Observational Natural History Study to Assess HIBM Disease
HIBM is a severe progressive myopathy that typically presents in early adulthood as weakness in the distal muscles of the lower extremities and progresses proximally, leading to a loss of muscle strength and function, and ultimately a wheelchair-bound state. The rate of progression is gradual and variable over the course of 10-20 years or longer. There is a need to better understand the disease-specific features of HIBM to heighten disease awareness; facilitate early diagnosis; identify patients; expand knowledge of the clinical presentation, progression and variation of the disease; identify and validate biomarkers and other efficacy measures; inform on the design and interpretation of clinical studies of investigational products; and eventually to optimize patient management.

The main objective of this program is to better understand HIBM.
The specific HIBM Disease Registry's objectives are to:
- Identify HIBM patients worldwide.
- Promote awareness and facilitate diagnosis of HIBM disease in the neuromuscular field.
- Obtain an assessment of the medical history, clinical presentation and progression of disease in HIBM patients and provide a connection for subjects to the broader HIBM community and associated programs.
- Provide customized information to subjects and their physicians that desire information on their disease status and progression.
The specific HIBM Natural History Study's objectives are to:
- Characterize HIBM disease presentation and progression over time using relevant clinical assessments of muscle strength and function.
- Obtain information to better characterize quality of life and understand the timing of significant life changing events in HIBM patients using patient-reported outcomes.
- Identify biomarkers and efficacy measures for use as endpoints in future clinical studies.
